    Excellent representations of truths…this is how we exploit natural resources with higher order of consumerism! The per capita availability of natural resources, especially he land resources largely varies from country to country; however, within a geographic administrative boundary also, there is even larger gaps! Developments with economic terminologies has been overcoming the ecological sustainability and it’s ill-impacts have been reflecting through hunger deaths, civil wars, corporate colonisms, diseased societies; malnourished future and more-n-more natural disasters!
