MELBOURNE: Australia has been ranked as the seventh top polluter mainly due to carbon emissions, a report said.
Conservation group World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in its report said the spiralling global population and over-consumption are threatening the future health of the planet, ABC news reported.
WWF released this year's Living Planet Report, which has estimated humans are using 50 per cent more resources than the planet can provide. If everyone lived like the average Australian, it would take 3.76 planets to support the world's population, the report said.
Qatar ranked on the top followed by Kuwait, UAE, Denmark, the United States and Belgium. WWF Australia ecologist Martin Taylor said it's a top 10 ranking the nation should be ashamed of.
