2. If you were to estimate the ecological footprint of a jeep tour in Sedona what would you need to consider. How do you estimate the ecological footprint of a jeep tour? In addition to understanding the estimation of ecological footprint, you need to research on jeep tours in Sedona (search in Google) to answer this question.
3. Which country has the highest per capita EF and why?
4. What is tourism footprint?
5. Based on the article, what is the major source of tourism footprint in leisure tourism? What would you recommend to reduce carbon footprint contributed by this sector?
6. What is the difference between gross tourism EF and net tourism EF?
Carbon Offsetting  Schemes for Aviation (Gossling’s article)
7. The paper argues that the aviation sector contributes a large proportion of green house gases. Based on the paper, what are the measures to reduce GHGs emissions by this sector of the tourism industry?
8. Explain why emissions from air travel are more harmful than surface bound traffic.
9. Explain the carbon market.
  1. What is ecological footprint? Explain.

Ecological foot print has been defined by many authors as an accounting tool that could enable people to estimate the consumption of resources and waste assimilation requirements of a known human population or economy given in terms of a corresponding productive land area. Ecological footprint can be perceived as the total of myriad actual land and sea areas around the world earmarked by the population

There are frequent jeep tours organized in the Sedona region of Arizona, which is famous for its scenic beauty and wonderful adventures (Tread Lightly, 2015).
3. Which country has the highest per capita EF and why?
North America and Western Europe have the highest per capita footprints. These countries have the highest per capita ecological footprints because of the number of tourists visiting the area and the impact of the population on the environment.
4. What is tourism footprint?
Tourism footprint can be defined as the impact of tourists on the natural resources. It is related to the demands upon natural resources, such as food, water, energy being supplied
5. Based on the article, what is the major source of tourism footprint in leisure tourism? What would you recommend to reduce carbon footprint contributed by this sector?
The major source of tourism footprint in leisure tourism as given by the example of Seychelles is the air travel that can account for approximately 50 % of the total ecological footprint. Carbon footprint contributed by this sector can be reduced by using eco-
6. What is the difference between gross tourism EF and net tourism EF?
The gross tourism ecological footprint has two broad components: one generated in the transit zone and the other generated in the destination area. The net tourism ecological footprint can be defined as the sum of the transit and destination area components, less the source country ecological footprint for the period away from home.
7. The paper argues that the aviation sector contributes a large proportion of green house gases. Based on the paper, what are the measures to reduce GHGs emissions by this sector of the tourism industry?
The measures being taken to reduce GHSs emissions by the aviation sector of the tourism industry are: governmental command –and-control measures, such as emission trading
8. Explain why emissions from air travel are more harmful than surface bound traffic.
Emissions from air travel are particularly harmful than the surface bound traffic because they are released in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere and the emissions in these regions have a larger effect on cloudiness and ozone generation,
9. Explain the carbon market.
Carbon market is basically an option to achieve reduction in emission at a lower price. The carbon market consists of voluntary and regulatory regimes that work for the reduction of carbon emission by implementing regulation processes.
