An ecological foot print is the measure of a country's dependency and demand on the Earth's natural resources analyzed alongside it's ability to
regenerate those resources. This correlates with the country's carbon dioxide emissions. Transportation, Utilities and Industrial Production are CO2 sources that,
in Canada, are primarily evidenced. Reducing this ecological footprint only requires us to take small footsteps such as walking, carpooling or taking
public transit. However, large scale improvements should not be ignored such as switching to a renewable source of energy. The Canadian Government has
introduced some regulations in order to reduce the economic footprint. They have also encouraged citizens to switch to renewable energy sources.

Our ecological footprint is fairly large. Canada makes up 1.80% of the global total in terms of annual CO2 emission releasing about 544 091 thousand of metric tonnes per year. A majority of Canada’s CO2 emission comes from our main industrial cities such as Toronto who makes up a large portion of Canada’s population; also, from provinces such as Alberta who are known for producing oil. The transportation in industrialized cities such as the wide usage of cars, trucks, and buses emits a large amount of CO2 per year. As well as the factories in Canada who burn fossil fuels release a dangerous amount of carbon dioxide. We can reduce our ecological footprint by limiting our transportation use by carpooling or using other environmentally friendly methods such as biking or walking. As a country we can limit CO2 emission by reducing the amount of energy produced by burning fossil fuels.

Libera is one of the world’s poorest countries covering an area of 48,000 sq mile with a total population of 3.5 million people. According to the 2010 Global Footprint Network, Liberia’s ecological footprint is relative small estimated at 0.0 in 2005 to 1.26 hectares per person due to the low population thus the less demand of impact on the environment. Carbon dioxide is caused by the burning of fossil fuels and the making of cement. In Liberia, the government is not doing anything about the ecological footprint because the country already has fewer cars and fewer industrial companies.

An ecological footprint is an instrument in finding out how much pressure humans are putting on the environment. We are using a lot more resources than the Earth can provide for us. Many of us do not know how much of our resources we are using. Actually, many of us do not even know how many resources we have left to use.

In Romania, the ecological footprint is about 2.4 gha per person. The government doesn't take the initiative to reduce this footprint, but a few organizations are informing the public. If we reuse, reduce, recycle and put earth's demands before our needs, we can reduce our carbon print.
