Yesterday I read this article in Yahoo news referring to this World Wildlife Fund report that humans are using up the resources on the planet in an unprecedented rate over the last 20 years. The United Arab Emirates are using up resources at a faster rate per capita than the United States and Canada are. Australia is also high up on this list.
I think this quote is the most important from a moral position on how we as a global community are using these resources:
"The choices we make today will shape the possibilities for the generations which follow us. The fact that live we live beyond our means in our use of natural resources will surely limit opportunities for future generations that follow."
