Our ecological footprint is a way to measure the impact humans have on the natural environment. Every day, millions of Canadians drive their vehicles to work, school, or entertainment venues, which creates greenhouse gases and consumes non-renewable resources. These behaviours, and many other consumption habits, all contribute to our ecological footprint. Many experts believe that we are consuming more resources each year than the Earth can produce.
The topic of the paper is about the effect of rapid population growth in the suburbs on local environments. Your task is to explore the relationships that exist between population growth, personal consumption, technological development, and our ecological footprint and write an opinion paper based on your findings.
