  Footprint
  values
  are
  categorized
  into
  several
  sectors
  including;
  carbon,
  food,
  housing,
  and
  goods
  and
  services
  as
  well
  as
  the
  total
  footprint
  number.
  The
  total
 footprint
 value
 provides
 us
 with
 the
 number
 of
 earths
 required
 to
 sustain
 the
  level
 of
 consumption
 at
 the
 current
 population.
 
 
 
  The
 basis
 of
 ecological
 footprint
 is
 to
 know
 how
 much
 of
 nature’s
 resources
 

we
  are
  consuming
  and
  how
  long
  it
  will
  take
  the
  earth
  to
  renew
  those
  resources.
  According
  to
  the
  Global
  Footprint
  Network-­‐
  Advancing
  the
  Science
  of
  Sustainability,
  “the
  Ecological
  Footprint
  has
  emerged
  as
  the
  world’s
  premier
  measure
  of
  humanity’s
 demand
 on
 nature.”
 
 
  It
  is
  a
  complex
  accounting
  system
  that
  takes
  into
  consideration
  several
 

different
  factors.
  These
  factors
  consist
  of
  “areas
  for
  producing
  the
  resource
  it
  consumes,
 the
 space
 for
 accommodating
 its
 buildings
 and
 roads,
 and
 the
 ecosystems
  for
  absorbing
  its
  waste
  emissions
  such
  as
  carbon
  dioxide.”
  [Global
  Footprint
  Network]
 
  Carbon
  dioxide
  emission
  is
  a
  greenhouse
  gas
  released
  from
  burning
  fossil
  fuels.
 This
 occurs
 from
 various
 human
 activities
 and
 natural
 sources.
 
 The
 Industrial
  revolution
 has
 played
 a
 significant
 role
 in
 the
 extensive
 increase
 in
 carbon
 dioxide
  emissions.
 
  According
  to
  What’s
  Your
  Impact,
  “87
  percent
  of
  all
  human-­‐produced
  carbon
 dioxide
 emissions
 come
 from
 burning
 of
 fossil
 fuels
 like
 coal,
 natural
 gas
 and
  oil.
  The
  remainder
  results
  from
  the
  clearing
  of
  forests
  and
  other
