Earth Day Quiz & Discussion

I found this quiz on the Earth Day website. I scored miserably. See how you did and let us know! (And please... if your score is much better than mine... maybe you need to be doing the posting and give me ideas).

CATEGORY/ACRES
FOOD/4.2
MOBILITY/6.4
SHELTER/7.7
GOODS/SERVICES/12.8
TOTAL FOOTPRINT/31

IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 24 ACRES PER PERSON. WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE ACRES PER PERSON.

IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 7 PLANETS.

I tried putting in a few things I'd be willing to change... reduce meat consumption, increase biking & carpooling... that got my rating down to a 30. Not encouraging.

EDITED: For those of you concerned with my obscene score... I re-took the quiz with all the same answers and said I never went on airplanes. Surprise, surprise, I now needed 20 earths instead of 31. I will say, I do flying for my job, and my job is to make America's largest hospitals go paperless.
