Scott Pantoskey 4805420 2/23/11 R.L.L. #5: Ecological Footprint 1. We would need a total of five planet Earths to supply enough resources for the average person in the United States. Although, my ecological footprint is slightly less and if everyone lived like me, we would need 4.3 planet Earths to have enough resources. Some things that may account for differences in footprints include: the type of nation (industrialized or agricultural), amount of people in the nation, availability of resources, urban versus suburban lifestyles, and whether or not the country is a major distributor of goods and services. Also, my footprint, personally, may differ from the average person’s living in the United States because I ride my bike and skateboard a lot rather than depending busses and other forms of public transportation. I also do not have accessibility to a car at college so I am forced to ride my bike and I a good allowance so I am fortunate enough to spend more money on non processed, local goods than other less fortunate people in the U.S.

    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.
