Are you and your country an ecological creditor or a debtor one?
Answers are on global footprint network troughtout resources available on web site footprintnetwork.org. Humanity is exceeding planetary limits. Since 1972 the authors of “Limits to growth” certificated how ecological assets are becoming more critical. Every country and citizen have a great opportunity to reduce their ecological risk profile. It’s the main topic of COP22 [see http://cop22.ma/en/%5D ].
The COP – which stands for “Conference of the Parties.” – is the supreme decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Through this instrument, the United Nations has equipped itself with an action framework to fight global warming.
Implications of ecological deficits can be devastating, leading to resource loss, ecosystem collapse, debt, poverty, famine and war. Everyone has the responsibility to prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system. The effects of global warming caused by human activity are now clear.
