What's your footprint?

This is an interesting quiz. It asks you questions about your lifestyle and consumption of resources and tells you what you use compared to the world's actual resources.

It's not as finely-tuned as it might be--some of the choices offer too stark a division (you can either fly 25 hours a year or 100--hint: if you fly to Asia once you're over 25 but not close to 100!). But still the results are rather stunning. When I estimated high, I came out about average for an American. When I estimated low, I still came out using three times as much as we'd all have if the world's resources were divided equally among all humans.
