The Ecological Footprint
The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth’s ecosystems. It compares human demand with planet Earth’s ecological capacity to regenerate. The Earth has approximately 1.8 biologically productive hectacres per person. By analyzing the ecological footprint of humanity, we can see that most people in the western world have footprints so large, that if everyone lived like them, we would need multiple planets.
