The model demonstrated the required amount of CO2 needed to sequester carbon emissions. 17. How do carbon emissions exemplify the “tragedy of the commons”? Humanity uses the atmosphere and earth/nature as a common resource and delpeting for our own benefit. Got to the Personal Footprint link here ? Clik on the “takequiz” link or go here ? When it says to select your location, choose the United States. If the model asks you to choose a version, choose the detailed version. Create an avatar of your choosing, and begin the survey. Complete all four parts of the survey, and print out a copy of you personal ecological footprint when you are done, then answer the following questions. Leave the page open!!! 18. What was your ecological footprint according to the model in terms of the number of Earth’s necessary to sustain you lifestyle? Did this surprise you? Why or why not? My ecological footprint is 3.8 earths. This did not surprise me because I know that I can always improve my environmentally activeness and I have a lot that I can work on as a member of planet earth. 19. How many global acres of Earth’s productive area are required? Tons of Carbon Dioxide? 17.4 global acres and 17.9 tons of carbon dioxide 20. List the percentage breakdown for each of the five categories in the pie chart for your ecological footprint. Food - 13 % Shelter - 19% Mobility - 8% Goods - 12% Services - 48% Click on the explore scenarios button on your footprint page….Click on at least two of the “What if” selections and then click “OK”. 21. Describe the two actions you chose, and the effect on your ecological footprint. Click “OK” one more time, and when prompted click on the “Save Footprint” button….you’ll need to enter a valid email address and pick a password. Now you can access your footprint any time. I chose to reduce the amount of CO2 emissions I release from transportation by half and this reduced the amount of earths to 3.5.

    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.
