Is consumerism a threat for our planet?

I really think consumerism a more serious problem than terrorism,global warming and polution,for the main fact that the mainkind is not aware of this problem. Think about our electronic devices ,we change them imediatly they have a little damage,we never think in replace the broke part we simply replace the device.

    Oct 15 2013: The consumerism we have formed is inseparable linked to global warming and pollution and even cause to certain forms of terrorism and as part of the whole a threat to our planet.

    By changing just two basic factors of consumerism to : 100% green energy & 100% recycling, its current threat vanishes completely.

    The fact that this hasn't been changed yet is not a technical problem, its a defect in the DNA of the current economy.
