I think my 3.8 planets are a bit misleading, they did not have any options for selecting if you don't have a car and if you don't drive. I think my walking is undervalued.

Or we would need to make sure there were only 1.2 billion people on this planet.

2.something score for me with 5.6 as the national score, 3 planets needed.
The scoring is stupid in some ways, most of my score is because I eat meat 1ce a day.

According to that test you'd have to be a vegetarian to be any good, which is utter and complete bullocks.

Does this also assume that everyone else lives in a city just like me? That is ridiculous. I could live the same way I live now give or take if I lived out in the country, except I would spend a lot more fuel going to the store/work/etc.

Yeah, seven people in a 500 square foot home without electricity, eating only grass and never even dreaming about riding in a car. I'm sure everyone in the world is going to live like that...

Well how do you like that, I didn't know I lived so wastefully. Oh well, if we survive long enough to kill our planet, it's out own fault. With any luck, Jesus or alien overlords or enlightenment or complete self destruction or whatever actually happens will occur first. On the other hands, It SHOULD be 4.9 earths because I want one all to myself. The only human on earth doesn't sound that bad.

4.1. Oops.

The company I work for inserts these little 'Please consider your environmental responsibilities before printing this email' signatures in all our emails, then pays me to fly and drive all over the country.

Go figure.

Truth is, the whole of Western Europe could go 'carbon neutral' tomorrow and it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference on a global scale.

Right, I'm off to colonise an extra planet. Mars looks nice, or maybe a space colony near Jupiter. (anyone who ever played zone of the enders knows what I mean)
