The world in its current state of 6 billion people is rapidly approaching the earths limit forcarrying capacity.Currently the globe is practicing unsustainable practices that are increasing the depletion of natural and nonrenewable energy resources. Sustainable living is easy and achievable I am not say to go and live like These People, but there aresustainable solutions that we all can adapt to our daily lifestyles.
We are going to have to learn responsibility we can not keep living as if the world is composed of infinite resources to use at our discretion. In no way am I advocating a return to the dark or middle ages, but for a sustainable living to ensure that this generation of children and there children will have a life free of worries from the all consuming mentality that we have adopted. Other developed nations are light years head of us in their stewardship of the environment. If you have not seen the movie an “Inconvenient Truth” I urge you to place it on your next Net Flix delivery.
Globally, the 20% of the world's people in the highest-income countries account for 86% of total private consumption expenditures - the poorest 20% a minuscule 1.3%. (globalissues.org)
Nation’s like ours cannot continue to steal and plunder the earth resources we are using more than our fair share and the total population of the United States is diminutive in comparison to burgeoning populations in India. Yet we continue to consume STUFF.
