Consumption

Our consumption of natural resources, including oil, coal, wood, and metals, to produce the dizzying array of products we buy contributes to climate change and environmental degradation, and this behavior will need to change if we are to prevent the harm that comes with a warming planet.

"The Story of Stuff," (http://www.storyofstuff.com/) is an amusing, very witty 20-minute video on the tremendously destructive effects on the environment at many different stages, from extraction of natural resources all the way through to disposal.
