Humans Using Resources & Emitting Waste "52 Percent Faster than the Earth Can Sustain" - CleanTechnica

Humans Using Resources & Emitting Waste "52 Percent Faster than the Earth Can Sustain" - CleanTechnica: "Humanity is using resources and emitting waste (particularly carbon dioxide from fossil fuel burning) at a rate 52 percent faster than the Earth can sustain according to WWF’s Living Planet Report 2012.
The report was launched from the International Space Station on the 15th of May by AndrĂ©
Kuipers, a European Space Agency astronaut.
WWF International Director General Jim Leape said with the current trend of consumption, two planets will be needed by 2030 to support not just the human race but every living creature in it as well."
