Eco footprint

From My Footprint, via bopeepsheep and others:

CATEGORY GLOBAL HECTARES
FOOD 1.5
MOBILITY 0.3
SHELTER 0.5
GOODS/SERVICES 0.5
TOTAL FOOTPRINT 2.8

IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 5.3 GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.
WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 1.8 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE GLOBAL HECTARES PER PERSON.
IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 1.6 PLANETS.

Hmm. Seems like I need to buy/eat more locally produced food!
Thats what did for me as well. I drive 50 miles a day, but we can't afford to move closer so I am stuck with it. Sigh...
