The living planet report

In October of last year the World Wildlife Fund published its Living Planet Report. This report claims our ecological footprint exceeds the earths biocapacity by 50 percent and that by 2030 we will need two earths to support sustainable life on the planet. This could explain a lot of the dismal economic news we have been getting lately.

Yet I have seen no discussion of this report – not even any attempts to contradict it. That’s a pity because if this report is correct, or even partly correct, prompt and drastic action is required to minimize the human suffering that will/ is happening..
