Our Global Footprint

Our Global Footprint | Development geography | Scoop.it

All of us depend on nature to live. In some ways, Earth’s bounty is like a bank account, which is recharged, for instance by sun-powered plant growth. Against this account, we—as individuals, as nations, and as a global community—are constantly making withdrawals.
