The Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need but not for every man’s greed.
This quote is attributed to Mahatma Gandhi. Is he still right, does the Earth have the capacity to fulfil every man’s need?
The key question of my blog is of course this: ”Are there enough resources on Earth to sustain the world population of today and the future?”.
I’m not the only one asking that or a similar question. In 2009, Sir David Attenborough made a documentary called “How Many People Can Live on Planet Earth?”. It is about 48 minutes, has what I think is a bit overdramatic music, but is well worth watching. I think I will write many posts about this topic – almost can’t wait…
