List the sites used. Summarize the results your eco-foot and carbon footprint quizzes. Explain what the results mean.
The site I used the most was http://www.footprintnetwork.org/ and the results from my footprint quizzes showed that I use energy way to much that if everyone lived like me we would 4.7 plants to have to sources to live.
Are the results from the various programs the same or do they vary? Why? Which one do you think is the most accurate and why?
Yes they were with me pretty much all the same I just need to stop using so much energy on things.
Do all the sites ask the same questions? If not what are some of the major differences between them?
The questions were all similar in some way.

The biggest factor for me was the energy because I use some much of it every day which I didn’t notice until I took the quizzes
