'How humans run the Earth' - Infographic

Below is an infographic provided by upack.com, that depicts the rate at which human population grows and what impact/consequences it has on our planet.

Humans are already overpopulating this world and unless we ALL learn how to live in a more sustainable way, we stand no chance in the next century or so (and are likely to end up like the Rapa Nui people from the Easter Islands). The facts and stats below speak for themselves.

Jumbo Elephant Jet ad from IFAW Germany

The German branch of the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) has released a video to raise awareness on illegal exports of goods made from animal parts. This not only concerns underground black markets but also local souvenir markets where tourists often buy small hand-made products without always knowing how it is made. So next time you travel, think twice about buying a little statue made of ivory.

You can also make a donation directly under the video using Google checkout. Great ad from IFAW and great move from Google.
