Ranking of countries and ecological footprints

The report WWF Living Planet It is a report that is produced every two years where the environmental situation of the planet is analyzed.

In the 2010 edition, this report provides really worrying data since the degradation of biodiversity and ecosystems as well as the increased demand for natural resources.

It was concluded that the ranking of the 5 countries with the largest ecological footprint in the world are the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Denmark, Belgium and the United States.

It can be said that it is the most developed and industrialized countries that consume excessively natural resources y produce high levels of pollution. Being the energy factor one of the most relevant points for its contribution to the ecological footprint.

The world's population in total is using more natural and energy resources than the planet is capable of regenerating, so it is being depleted due to the pressure of different economic activities on ecosystems.

In addition to consuming more resources than the planet is capable of generating, techniques or methods are not being developed to absorb more carbon dioxide and reduce pollution, which worsens the situation.

It is estimated that if this global trend of resource consumption continues, that in the year 2030 2 planets will be needed to supply the requirements of humanity.

This process must be stopped as soon as possible so as not to put our own existence at risk. It is vital to change habits and achieve more responsible and ecological consumption patterns, but countries also have to take measures to reduce the consumption of resources and energy.

The use of clean renewable energy and the use of natural resources taking into account their renewal rate are essential policies to be able to stop this process of self-destruction that puts at risk not only the economies of the countries but the survival of millions of people around the world.
