It Would Take 4.4 Earths To Sustain A World Full Of Americans

It takes the planet 1.5 years to restore what humanity burns through in a year. The silver lining, the US is #1 in something once again – consumption.

Rather disappointingly, the USA is 56th in the world for alcohol consumption per capita (though we suspect that will rise).
