    Betsy Taylor, President of the Center for a New American Dream, says it best:

    "We all know the bad news. But what do each of us know about how personal consumer choices can contribute to the problem - or the solution?

    First the problem: The Earth is out of balance and our consumption of resources is a root cause of the problem. It seems everything but the planet is getting bigger: television screens, houses, vehicles, bathtubs, burgers, candy bars, waistlines and credit card debt. Meanwhile wilderness areas, grasslands and underground aquifers continue to shrink.

    There is a connection. With just 5 percent of the planet's global population, Americans consume some 30 percent of the world's material resources and 40 percent of the gasoline. If everyone consumed like the average American, some scientists predict that we would need at least four more planets to provide the necessary resources and absorb the waste."

    Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we talk about shopping "green" this holiday season.
