Big human footprint crushing fragile Earth

According to the World Wildlife Fund’s 2006 Living Planet Report, people are now turning resources into waste at a pace 25 per cent faster than the Earth can turn waste back into resources.


Underscoring the threat posed by our growing footprint, the World Wildlife Fund says that by 2050 we would need two Earths to support us if we continue using up ecological resources at the rate we are going.

While critics may dismiss the report’s findings as grossly exaggerated, the study should, in fact, serve as a wake-up call for anyone interested in the long-term sustainability of the Earth.
