Ecological Footprint: Max Sprenger (Netherlands)

Max needs 2.9 Planet Earths (see his comments)

Global Footprint - Max Sprenger

Max’s Commentary:

Living in France I chose Switzerland for my E.F. as it is the nearest country.

Question that are about quantities only offer these options: 0%, 25%, 75% and 100%. The options given are not detailed enough. Also, about food; chicken is not a given option.

When given the choice if we think that we consume more or less than an average citizen it would be helpful if we were given an example. Without the example of the average consumption of a Swiss, one has to guess. A Guess has more of an opinion than a fact.

I think this is a really great start but could be even more accurate if people were given more detailed questions and answers to choose from.

Even though the accuracy is dubious, I would advise people to take this test because it makes you think. For example, I now unplug my electrical equipment more often and try to spill less water.
