Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... Singapore are self sufficient in their resources.

Lessee, Africa, footprint 1.4 ha/ca, biocapacity, 1.8 ha/cap, surplus 0.4 ha/cap, on a population of 902m, or a surplus biocapacity of 360m ha.

EU, footprint, 4.7ha/ca, biocapacity, 2.3ha/ca, deficit, 2.4ha/ca, on a population of 487.3, or a deficit biocapacity of 1,169.3m ha.

There you go, the Africans are just paddling across the Med to get their hands on their missing resources.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
