I recently came across this article, about a study showing that Americans used less water in 2005 than in 1975, despite the population increase. And that got me thinking: we assume that we're approaching an environmental doomsday, and that all human impact on the earth is for the worse. But here we have evidence that we're doing some good, or at least that we're doing better. So we have to make sure we have our facts straight before going knee-jerk and assuming that we're piloting the planet into catastrophe- maybe we're greener than we think.
