  • Sep 14 2012: there is enough for every one

    the saddest thing is that many doesn't know when it is enough...
    • Sep 14 2012: i agree ... resources are still enough, maybe not for a long time
      managing these resources is governed by greed so far, sustainable management is the key and empathy would play such a great role to do the change.
    • Sep 15 2012: Not quite, there is enough food and water for everyone, but beyond that there is actually a shortage of some metals (there's not enough copper left to fit the entire world with copper powerlines for example).
