Week 5 - Discussion 1 Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7  (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your  initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading  Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be  evaluated. Ecological Footprint and Comparison [WLOs: 2] [CLOs: 3, 6] Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 9 of the  Contemporary  Environmental Issues text. Also, view these two short videos on reducing  waste:  Disposability Consciousness       (Links to an external site.)Links to an external  site.  and  Two Adults, Two Kids, Zero Waste | Bea Johnson | TEDxFoggyBottom       (Links  to an external site.)Links to an external site. . In this week’s discussion, you will recalculate your ecological footprints from Week 1,  and determine whether or not your actions taken over the past five weeks have made a  difference in the size of your footprints. You will also have the opportunity to discuss  additional actions one might take to live more sustainably. In particular, you are  encouraged to focus on techniques for reducing the amount of waste that we generate  in our everyday lives. Complete the following: First, redo your three footprint calculations from Week 1: your ecological footprint ( What Is Your Ecological Footprint?       (Links to an external site.)Links to an external  site. );  your household carbon emissions footprint  ( Carbon Footprint Calculator       (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. ),  and your daily water footprint  ( Water  Footprint Calculator       (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. ). Compare your new answers from the ones you obtained back in Week 1. How  did the footprints change, if at all? Do you suspect that any changes are the result of the actions you took? Why or why not?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
