    The Australian Broadcasting System has developed a web site that tells kids how long their carbon footprint should allow them to live.

    The actual title is “Professor Schpinkee’s Greenhouse Calculator - find out when you should die!â€￾

    I put everything into the calculator, and it said that I should die at age 15 so I should have been dead a long time ago. It also said that my carbon footprint is 24.6 tonnes.

    I doubt if anyone in America "deserves" to live past age 35 according to this website.

    Great to have some clown telling kids they should die because they eat meat or don't live in a flat. Thank you "Professor" Schpinkee.

    I've got about ten years to live.

    And as a side note I believe that's the first time I've seen an animated pig explode in a ball of blood.

    I like the idea of getting kids thinking about this type of thing, but this is horrible. I'm about as much of an pro-environment guy as anybody, but this is not good. When I should die? Who does this guy think he is?

    17 years of age? Hard to believe this is actually for kids. Make them feel bad about themselves, and then show a poor cartoon piggy's blood splatter onto the walls and pigs next to him. Silly Aussies.

    That's when I died too. I didn't get that the more money I spend per year the more CO2 I use. That didn't make any sense at all.

    By the way, Global Warming doesn't exist:wink:.

    I should have died at age 5. Don't know what I did wrong with this.

    Any chance that when asked how much money you spent, that those dollars are in Australian dollars?
