Ecological overdraft

filed under: @ 18:58:06 by 7colors

Humanity slides into the red today and begins racking up an ecological overdraft driven by unsustainable exploitation of the world's resources, according to a report by the sustainable development organisation Global Footprint Network. In little more than nine months, humans have used up all that nature can replenish in one year, and for the rest of 2006 are destined to eat into the planet's ecological capital, the study claims.

There is need of a much higher awareness on sustainable development. Unfortunately, the media mostly concentrate in pushing people to augment the waste rather then bring the attention on the impossibility to keep going the way we have so far.
