How many planets would be needed ?

What would the earth look like if everyone lived like me ?

The Earth couldn't support it's 6.6 billion residents if everyone lived like a typical American ( one could replace American with urban consumers in most parts of the world ). Consumer consequences will tell you how many planets it would take to support your lifestyle on a planetary level.

Though it's designed primarily to guage the planetary impact of American lifestyle it's relevant for urban consumers in most parts of the world.

We have one planet . Let's make it sustainable .
