Since then the date has been creeping forward each year.<br /> <br /> The UK consumes and produces waste at a rate three and a half times greater than it can sustain.<br /> <br /> Qatar is one of the worst offenders: the typical resident requires the resources of six and a half times what the earth can produce.<br /> <br /> If everybody were to live like United States residents, it would take four times the earth’s resources to support the global population.<br /> <br /> China’s total ecological footprint is smaller, per capita, than in Europe or North America but its footprint is the heaviest in the world in raw size, because of its huge population.<br /> <br /> Further reading:<br /> <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2397292/Weve-used-resources-Earth-provide-year-overdraft-campaigners-warn.html">http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2397292/Weve-used-resources-Earth-provide-year-overdraft-campaigners-warn.html</a> 'Frozen Zoo' for Thailand's vanishing breeds tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-02-04:2182797:Video:2157240 2013-02-04T02:13:57.901Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/frozen-zoo-for-thailand-s-vanishing-breeds"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/9v7KP*xxVdtyO-k2EkH5nJ-6GPT7FUnRQlEkO2vxcx1oZKf76UXlcFqWB4lon1nJmdcVyPRZwswcNyyrt*fkWLXiUNgJD9Bb/1007730801.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>A new programme in Thailand is working to increase the populations of endangered species.
