Responsible Consumption Guideline

Responsible Consumption Guideline

How much can each of us consume, on average, for a healthy and sustainable planet?

We need a guideline for individual consumption respecting the global ecological footprint for the whole planet. For example : If every person on the planet consumes the same amount of goods, how many computer per person can we afford in order to be sustainable? Is it 1 per person for 5 years, one per 1000 persons?
The calculation would be made for water, food (meat, cereals, vegetables, fish, etc.), cars and other transportations, gas, energy, computers and phones, clothing, etc.
There could be some differentiation made between hot and cold countries, dry vs humid, rural vs urban areas.
There could be an ideal model (with renewable energy, organic cotton, collective transportation, vegetarian diet, etc.) and a more "realistic" model with what we have today (shared cars in suburbs, moderate meat consumption, less computers, etc.)

This calculation is crucial because it could be used as a consumption guideline for consumers in developped countries. If these data are well publicized, it could become a reference for cautious consumers but also for government policy.

As responsible citizens, we would like to have clear data as to what it is OK to consume, not our own logic or our vague sense of guilt.
