IN COMPARISON, THE AVERAGE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT IN YOUR COUNTRY IS 24 ACRES PER PERSON.
WORLDWIDE, THERE EXIST 4.5 BIOLOGICALLY PRODUCTIVE ACRES PER PERSON.
IF EVERYONE LIVED LIKE YOU, WE WOULD NEED 3.7 PLANETS.
Good thing not everyone lives like me. Some live better and many many
others live much worse. Being a poor American I can still sleep in my
nice bed in my warm apartment with a full stomache and wake up to an
alarm, lights, TV, and a hot shower followed by breakfast. I don't like
being poor but when you think about it. I have it pretty good compared
to a big percentage of the world population as a whole.
