One of the first things I noticed about the US when I got here, wide-eyed, a few years ago, was the sheer size of things – the buckets of cola and popcorn at the movies, the parking lots, SUVs and so forth. I am not not alone:
We are eating the planet, the whole damn thing, right down to the last blade of grass.
The article also mentions the ecological footprint of various nations. America’s footprint is a massive 10.3 hectares per person, India’s a paltry 0.8. So much is wasted, and so thoughtlessly!
