It’s really that simple Joan. One of us is wrong. But here is the list of the world’s largest cities. Again, they are all using exactly the same resources for roads, factories, schools, cars, clothes, housing, and everything else found in consumer society.
Why do you think the US is still the only country using massive amounts of resources?
And finally, what difference does it make at this point? The population increases at three additional people per second and the habitat is collapsing RIGHT NOW.
Tell me. How do we stop using these resources, change to something totally different and support 8 billion people, BEFORE this goes totally over the cliff? Show me your plan.
