Staggering Statistic of the Day

Over the past century, world water withdrawals have increased almost twice as fast as the world's population. (Tomorrow's Markets, World Resources Institute, p. 37)

We at CSL firmly believe that Project Live Small can effectively combat both the water withdrawals and the overpopulation problem now plaguing our planet.

Water is perhaps out most precious resource, and when no human measures taller than four feet, we will have much more of it. Smaller people will drink less water and also use less water while cleaning smaller dishes and washing loads of smaller laundry. Furthermore, overpopulation problems will decline as smaller people build smaller homes, drive smaller vehicles, and generally take up less space on the planet.
