    Our basic problem is:

of the planet's carrying capacity,
the planet
by too many people using up too much resources

There is one huge,
immediate problem:

the maximum of daily oil availability and its subsequent reduction

The human impact on the environment can be summarized by the equation I = P x A x T

Our environmental problems, such as deforestation and desertification, food and water shortages, threats to the survival of nature (biodiversity), resource depletion, pollution and slumification, and climate change are all aggravated by population growth and economic expansion, also known as economic "growth". growth tables...

In a finite world
is a suicidal policy.

Overshoot and resource depletion can logically only be countered by contraction. [A glossary]

means human society
in the balance with nature.
The balances are maintained if a resource is not consumed at a higher rate than needed for regeneration.

Many resources are non-renewable.
So here we must judge very carefully at which speed we may reasonably use these.
All resources - regenerative and non-renewable - are horribly over-exploited.
frequently means "Business"
- for business, politics, academia and non-government organisations.

Manifold are the models, propositions, and illusions about saving the world by business-as-usual - less some measures on the margins - with hoped-for, future technologies.

ecoglobe tries to cut through the "Business" maze of complications, contradictions and ideologies.  
We simplify where possible and rectify where necessary, independent, committed to reality.
Every two seconds five additional human beings are added to the world population:
This is called the
"Population Bomb".
In ten years the situation
will look like this:

More people need more food, water, space and raw materials.
The problems are local.
There where the babies are born they increase the overpopulation and often the misery.
Mentioning these facts is not racism but a sense for reality.
"Sustainable development" excludes economic growth and population growth.
Development in poor areas must be offset by contraction in overdeveloped areas.
