Although I do not agree with everything on this website, I do believe there are numerous themes we should all learn about. Consumerism, sadly, is destroying our world.  According to Susan George, in order to provide everyone in the world the average middle class lifestyle, we would need approximately 6.5 earth's worth of resources. 

"To achieve sustainable development and a higher quality of life for all people,states should reduce and eliminate unsustainable patterns of production and consumption..." Principle 8, The Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, 1992
