From the Paper:

"At a global level, one out of five people do not have access to fresh water; the numbers are expected to increase. Out of the entire resources of fresh water, 40 percent are no longer drinkable. The United States only has 4 percent of their initial forests. The United States consumes 30 percent of the global resources allocated per year; at this rate, we would need five planets just to get by (Leonard, 2008). However, we only have one planet, but since we are simply trashing it, we need to come up with a better plan to preserve the environment."
