difference between my score and the average in Ukraine. Also, there is a 5.2 gha difference between our average and Ukraine’s average. This average is significantly lower than the average in the US. When Ukraine became a country in 1992, there average ecological footprint was at a 4.9 gha. Since then, that number has dropped to the 2.9 gha average it is at today. These numbers are more ideal for us as Americans than the average than the average that we have today.

RUNNING HEAD: ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT 4 After examining the different categories my highest category by land type comes from my carbon footprint and the lowest is grazing land. There is a big difference between these two categories with my carbon footprint covering approximately covering 57% of all land type. The reason for this is as a college student, I am constantly commuting to and from campus. The drive from my house is about 10 minutes away, but sometimes it can take longer depending on traffic. There are some mornings where I will get caught in traffic just outside of campus and it can take me an additional 10-15 minutes before I even arrive on campus. Driving a car is a prime way of burning carbon dioxide, which contributes to the amount of gases that are emitted in the air (Ask Media Group, 2019). We naturally don’t think about the effects that cars have on our environment. The reality is that with all the cars driving around they are causing gases to be released into the air, which ultimately can affect air quality and pollution. Grazing land was the lowest score that I received after completing the ecological footprint quiz. The definition of grazing land is “A field covered with grass or herbage and suitable for grazing by livestock” (Grazing Land). The reason why this is my lowest score is because I am currently not putting any work towards maintaining any kind of land for livestock.

    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.
