Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For those who link consumerism to happiness these numbers are troubling.  Are we twice as happy as the Spanish?


You really haven't read my diary. Salient fact: 48% of Spain's energy footprint (or 2+ global hectares per person) comes from (mostly imported) "consumer goods". And in the comments you'll find that Spain is nearly tied with the US on a "sustainability index" ranking from 2002.
