If you want to know how large your ecological footprint is I have a relatively painless test you can take. The site asks you a number of questions and then tells you your footprint. One of the statistics it gives you is how many Earths it would take to sustain everyone if all humans consumed at your level. It’s very enlightening and, yes, slightly depressing. I do have to warn you that I was not able to take this test on my Mac. I needed to have a PC to take it. Maybe you’ll have better luck than I did. The test doesn’t take very long and maybe it will inspire you to lower your ecological footprint.
