    The Ecological Footprint measures the amount of biologically productive land and sea area an individual, a region, all of humanity, or a human activity that compete for biologically productive space.

    It doesn't measure anything.

    First of all, I am guessing this a paid troll question from alarmist Super Hans.  I doubt if someone is taking the time to create a new account and make a screen shot of a simple test question.   

    Anyway, do you know what happens when you literally make a footprint on most things?  Your footprint impression eventually disappears.  It disappears whether the imprint is on mud, sand, a rainy driveway, or even the indentation on your living room carpet.

    "Ecological footprint" is a political term not based on science.  The science of the matter is nature's entities adapt.  Just like your muddy footprint that eventually is obscured by rain--the world keeps on turning.
