    I measured my bare footprint and it is about 10 inches long. So if I am walking my carbon footprint is 10 inches. If I am standing still it is 20 inches. If I am laying down I guess it is zero. I will have to work on that since everyone has to have a carbon footprint. I am not sure about dead people. I believe that is one excuse given for abortion. It reduces the carbon footprint of mankind.

    My footprint is a result of being 6'5", 326pounds, and a size 13 shoe. When I step in carbon then my foot print is where ever I walk.

    My carbon footprint is supposedly 27.36, whatever that means and I don't care. I live my life and enjoy it.

    5.83 tonnes of CO2 for me. They didn't ask how many house plants we have....that should offset something, shouldn't it?

    Well, since it is 8:30 here on the East coast of the US, the hour long worship of mother earth has begun!

    Jesus said we are to be the light on the hill...
    Let those lights shine!

    I have the den light, kitchen light and under cabinet lights on. The entry hall light and front lights are on too. The TV and computer are on. Not much, unfortunately.

    Both my plasma's are going full blast. Glad I don't live on the West Coast. Also, my lights are burning. I love stimulating the economy for Alabama Power.

    For the Earth Hour bull, we left all our lights on, TV on and all computers on.

    I like OR's method of calculating footprints--carbon or otherwise.

    I didn't even know we were having an earth hour. I thought every hour I have in this life on this earth could be counted as an earth hour. I started to calculate my footprint, but since I didn't know what a "tonnes" is, I refused.

    Total = 47.96 tonnes of CO2



    That didn't even take into consideration that I drive a diesel truck 120,000 miles a year..... I bet I'm way up over 100 ton. Yea me, I'm feeding the trees.:laugh:
