Saturday' Good Deed: Measuring your Eco-footprint
I am still not sure by 'measuring' our eco-footprint it would bring more people to be more conscious about their impact on the environment than not. Sure, for people who are conscious about the environmental issues, they would attempt to do their best to cut their eco-footprint. However, for people who don't give a damn about the environment, they would see this as a tool by the environmentalists to restrain them from having a better lifestyle. I think it is better to tie eco-footprint to the economic impact on people's wallet's as well so that people know this is not about environment, but also their bottom line. Google's PowerMeter is one of the correct steps by the mega-corporation to show that connection.
