Good sleuth work Michelle! Now we are cookin'! Some of you have got a start figuring out how many planets we would need to live as you do, which should really make you think about what we might need to make your eutopias real for all also. Tough huh?
Has anybody played with the numbers to see how we would all have to live in order to fit on just one planet? Give it a try!
The carbon footprint is a difficult measure, and I see the Japanese calculator is giving infinity for some people, so I am glad you found some other carbon calculators for us, Michelle!
In modelling the world we need as many different models as possible since each one of them is bound to be oversimplified or to contain flawed assumptions and these throw the results off. Bravo for finding more models.
