The U.S. has 5% of the worlds population, but creates 30% of the worlds waste and uses 25% of the natural resources. The U.S. is the worlds #2 producer of carbon dioxide — with 46% of our lakes so polluted that they are risky for swimming, fishing, and aquatic life.
Every year we dump 1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage into our waters. The air pollution in the U.S. causes 200,000 premature deaths each year.
Air pollution is a major problem in every city in our country.
How about those facts… they’re either sobering or they make you want to go out for a drink.
