National Geographic channel has a show called the "Human Footprint"
that shows the American Dream way of life from the mid to upper
middle class lifestyle (the don't say this but this is the model they use).
There is also a telling line that says.."If the whole world lived like America
does we'd need four planet earth's to satisfy the demand for resources"
I enjoyed the show but it held few suprizes for me but those suprizes
there were were shockers!
It's worth a watch if you get to see it.
Did you know that you'll own 12 cars in a normal 77 yr 9 mo lifespan?
