Disparity of consumption and power

Written by Paul and Anne Ehrlich

The eco-footprint of an average American is roughly 4 times the global average, and as much as 10 times larger than those of the citizens of very poor countries such as Bangladesh and Chad.  That difference does not simply reflect different consumptive desires and incomes, it reflects the great disparity in power between the United States and the poorest countries.
