How big is your ecological footprint?

Since so many of us seem concerned with wildlife and the environment, here is a calculator that estimates your personal impact on the ecology.

Unfortunately, those of us whom travel (fly) frequently and drive frequently will have pretty low scores. I do think that credit should be given for staying at eco-lodges, as these areas may very well be used for livestock instead without our support.

Also, the amount of children we have should also be calculated. While my ecological footprint is pretty big (65 acres), at least I have not procreated (and do not yet have any intention to do so) thus adding more wasteful Americans to the equation.
