Are you a US or EU citizen? If so, will you demand that the U.S. Secretary of the Interior, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, U.S. Chief of the Forest Service, EPA Administrator, or the EU Commissioners, show leadership to bolster natural ecosystems and appropriately manage the ecological resources under their juridiction in order to build a secure and resilient future for us all?
Both the US and the EU consume 2.2 times as much as their own ecosystems can provide (food, fiber, wood, land for buildings and infrastructure, carbon absorption, etc.) We see the impacts of our excessive resource demand in the form of deforestation, top soil erosion, fisheries collapse, too much carbon in the atmosphere leading to climate change and extreme weather events – and more.
