Living Planet Report --The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has recently published the inaugural Living Planet Report. This report analyzes environmental data in conjunction with global consumption patterns to calculate the cumulative effect that humankind has on the earth's ecosystems. The report consists of two major parts: the Consumption Pressure section and the Living Planet Index. The Consumption Pressure section measures the per capita resource consumption and pollution statistics from 152 countries to determine humanity's impact on earth. The Living Planet Index presents new data on the health of the forest, freshwater and marine ecosystems around the world from 1970-1995 (Scout Report)
