What is a Footprint?

Comparison of US and Australian ecological footprints with African. Every Australian puts 26.5 tons of CO2-e into the atmosphere every year, every American puts 23.6 tons and most Africans a lot less than 1 ton each.

Three reports on the next probable stage of the financial crisis

Three reports on the next probable stage of the financial crisis. This is maturing in front of our eyes. Combine this information with the problems coming from Climate Change, Peak Oil and Sea Level Rise and we each have to individually think through our options for the future.

The 1972 study “Limits to Growth” has arrived with a vengeance. I believe these reports, plus those in earlier issues of FOOTPRINTS, compel us to one conclusion: change our expectations and think differently – and act without delay.
