Default Re: Overconsumption

GASP! THIS IS BOLSHIE GREENIE TALK!!

Anyway....would I be right in saying an Australian baby would, over its lifetime, use more resources than a baby born in Kenya (assuming similar lifespan of course)? In addition, is not the birth rate in western countries low and/or decreasing?? Still, looking at current stats, we really do need to look at our consumption if we are to have a socially just global population.

I have heard that very low birth rates in Japan could mathematically extinguish the population by 2300. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-16787538.
