Living Planet Report

The Living Planet Report is the world’s leading, science-based analysis on the health of our only planet and the impact of human activity by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).  Its key finding? Humanity’s demands exceed our planet’s capacity to sustain us. That is, we ask for more than what we have.

Check it out here

Here’s a teaser from the report:

2010 — The International Year of Biodiversity
— The year in which new species continue to be found, but   more tigers live in captivity than in the wild
—  The year in which 34 per cent of Asia-Pacific CEOs and 53 per cent of Latin American CEOs expressed concern about
the impacts of biodiversity loss on their business growth prospects, compared to just 18 per cent of Western European CEOs (PwC, 2010)
— The year in which there are 1.8 billion people using the internet, but 1 billion people still without access to an
adequate supply of freshwater
