The Earth's Carrying Capacity vs. Peoples' Consumption - Turning Lose/Lose to Win/Win

Nothing in this sophisticated interactive online visual from Scientific American will be news to people who are informed about climate change and general overconsumption.  This is the background which is ignored in all the discussions about buying our way out of global recession, and why that prescription's short-term prosperity is the road to long term disaster.
It does seem like there are ever more people who maintain denial as a political position.  No more regulations!  Wish we didn't have to spend so much time fighting and could work harder at innovating and preserving.  Enjoy this awesome job of communicating and predicting.
