Our planet is
running out of room and resources. Modern man has plundered so much,Earth's population will be
forced to colonise two planets within 50 years if
natural resources continue to be exploited at the current rate, according to a
report out this week.
A study by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), to be released on Tuesday, warns that the human race is plundering the planet at a pace that outstrips its capacity to support life.
In a damning condemnation of Western society's high consumption levels, it adds that the extra planets (the equivalent size of Earth)will be required by the year 2050 as existing resources are exhausted.
The report, based on scientific data from across the world, reveals that more than a third of the natural world has been destroyed by humans over the past three decades.
Using the image of the need for mankind to colonise space as a stark illustration of the problems facing Earth, the report warns that either consumption rates are dramatically and rapidly lowered or the planet will no longer be able to sustain its growing population.
Experts say that seas will become emptied of fish while forests - which absorb carbon dioxide emissions - are completely destroyed and freshwater supplies become scarce and polluted.
The report offers a vivid warning that either people curb their extravagant lifestyles or risk leaving the onus on scientists to locate another planet that can sustain human life. Since this is unlikely to happen, the only option is to cut consumption now.

Everything has a consequence, either good or bad. When
you take something away, what's left? Will it grow back on it's
own? Will it ever repair its self?
If the answer is No, then we as the taker should do our part to replace it, so that future generations may also take and give. It sounds like such a perfect answer, but humans have one giant flaw: Greed. All for me and none for you. So what happens? We take too much and expect to receive more without trying. Then when things become desperate, because we took more than we could replace, things get violent. Fights breakout, even wars all because we couldn't take the time to foresee our own greed.
What happens when one animal in the food chain eats too much of another animal? The cycle becomes unbalanced. When one creature is extinct, it's predator must hunt another animal. This small shift, effects everything else in the cycle. And once a species is entirely extinct, who knows how much it can affect other species.
Not to mention the fact that pollution is most damaging of all. Do people really think we could do this and not expect something bad to happen? The answer is to find better more balanced alternatives. Recycling. Finding more efficient ways of energy and fuel. Instead of complaining about high gas prices, but not doing anything to solve the problem.
Overuse of Earth Resources Endangers Human Existence, WWF warns.

EVERYONE HAS AN EQUAL
RESPONSIBLITY OF KEEPING OUR ENVIRONMENT CLEAN AND GOOD.MY PERSONAL
RESPONSIBLY, SUGGESSTIONS I HAVE ARE THE FOLLOWING :-
1.I USE MOSTLY USE CYCLES AND MASS TRANSPORTS.

If we want to cut seek permission from the Govt.
There must a rule made that way...
4. stopping the use of plastics and polythene bags may be very helpful in the future.
5.By planting more trees we can keep our environment good and by making proper waste disposal, proper sanitation we can keep our environment clean.
6.Stop the extra use of water as it is the most important resource and now is the most used one. only about 1% of fresh water is remaining for your daily use.
Exactly the amount of water required for a family should be supplied to it.
