The age of exponentiation

If all people would live like we do in the western world, then we would already need 3 earths today!

The world’s population consumes resources equivalent to two earths. In western europe,
we are overexploited as if we had three earths at our disposal. If you look
at the United States, we’d need our planet five times over.
