About this book

Illus by Testemale,(P). This book is a new planning tool for calculating the resources required to sustain households, communities, regions and nations. The book includes charts and illustrations that convert complex concepts of carrying capacity, resource use, waste disposal and more, into easily understood graphic form. By documenting the burdens that different groups impose on the earth's total carrying capacity, ecological footprinting becomes a yardstick for measuring whether we are living within our means, and whether we do so equitably.
