Natural Resource Depletion, Enviro-Degredation

20120206-211459.jpg

The OECD ties Natural Resource Depletion and Environmental Degredation directly to human well-being.

In order to properly respect the environment and our biosphere to ensure it remains in tact for the benefit of all species now and for the life of the planet, our human race must seek to reduce and restrict our use of natural resources to those coming from sustainable, renewable sources.

Isn’t it simply unfair for us to use up all the finite natural resources now, so that no one in the future will have any? Imagine a world where nothing natural is left for anyone because everyone before them used it all for themselves?
