There are obvious, direct implications for this magnitude of consumption concerning the environment and it's biodiversity. These consumptive practices will no doubt weaken the ecosystems they exploit as biodiversity will cease to thrive. There will be additional stresses on the resources people around the world depend on daily. We are currently finding ourselves in a growing biocapacity deficit as the global population continues to exponentially rise, particularly in dense urban areas. The rising population has generated a larger ecological footprint, as over-consumption and over-industrialization have created a deep dent in the supply of resources we depend on and pushed the limits of natural biogeochemical processes.
Reversing this trend will become increasingly difficult in the near future because it will rely on a large scale shift in the focus of global economic policy toward the sustenance of the natural world. Mitigating current climate trends and reducing out global ecological footprint is not out of reach, however, it will require large scale conservation and restoration efforts.
