7. What are the three major factors that account for an individual’s ecological footprint (in hectares per person)? The total amount of greenhouse gases produced (CO2), human consumption of natural resources, carbon emissions from human activity. 8. List the ecological footprint for a U.S. citizen in the following years- 1961, 1973, 1985, 2001, 2005. 1961 - 6.2 hectares per capita 1973 - 8.2 hectares per capita 1985 - 7.9 hectares per capita 2001 - 8.0 hectares per capita 2005 - 8.1 hectares per capita Find the drop down menu that says “country work” again and select “Japan” or follow this link 9. How does Japan’s ecological footprint compare to its biocapacity in general? The footprint is significantly higher than the biocapacity. 10. When will Japan’s biocapacity and ecological footprint equalize? The ecological footprint and biocapacity will most likely not equalize at this rate. 11. How does a Japanese citizen’s ecological footprint compare to someone from the U.S. in the year 2005? 3 hectares per capita lower than the US Find the drop down menu that says “country work” again and select “Chile” or follow this link 12. How does Chile’s biocapacity compare to its ecological footprint overall? The biocapacity was higher than the ecological footprint but it is starting to even out. 13. What to you think this says about Chile’s long term sustainability compared to the U.S. or Japan? Chile has better sustainability than the United States and Japan. 14. Estimate the average ecological footprint (in hectares per person) for a resident of Chile from 1961 to 2005. The average footprint is 3 hectares per capita Go to the Carbon footprint link here ? 15. How much of the ecological footprint is represented by the “Carbon Footprint”? 54% 16. Typically the carbon footprint refers to emissions. How is the carbon footprint here utilized in

    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.
