How long will it last? [Infographic] via @newscientist

5Fridays

This infographic shows current consumption rates of various natural resources and provides a timeline estimating when we will run out of them if we don’t become more sustainable. It demonstrates the impacts of American consumption, in particular, and notes where we’d be if the rest of the world consumed resources at just half the rate of the US.

Data compiled by by Armin Reller of the University of Augsburg and Tom Graedel of Yale University, graphic created by NewScientist.
