Abstract: With eleven sections plus an introduction and a conclusion, Goldfinger et al. (2014) thoroughly dispose of our case on the inadequacy of the Ecological Footprint (Giampietro and Saltelli, 2014) published on this journal. We identify circularity and contradiction in the argument of Goldfinger et al. (2014) and consolidate our case on the lack in coherence between the EF ambition to quantification and its evanescent architecture. We find confirmation of the non-relevance and counter productivity of this measure for policy consumption.
