RE: [GreenYes] Food for thought - may be of interest?
the one with the college education would probably be the same one who owns
the computer, and would be one of the six from the united states.
..and how much trash would that one produce?

If we could shrink the earth's population to a village of precisely 100 
people, with all the existing human  ratios remaining the same, it would
look something like the following.

There would be: 
57 Asians 
21 Europeans
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
8 Africans
52 would be female
48 would be male
70 would be non-white
30 would be white
70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian
89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual
6 people would possess 59% of the entire world's wealth and all 6 would
be from the United States. 
80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read 
50 would suffer from malnutrition 
1 would be near death; 1 would be near birth 1 (yes, only 1) would have
a college education; 1 would own a computer

When one considers our world from such a compressed perspective, the
need for both acceptance,  understanding and education becomes glaringly
apparent.
