Singapore: We're number 1, again!

We're #1! :P :lol:

The report says the average person’s consumption in Hong Kong equals 4.7 global hectares, while the available biocapacity per capita is just 0.03. That leaves the city with one of the world’s largest ecological deficits in the world, and the second-largest in Asia after Singapore.
Quite appropriately IMO, the source is foot-note in an article and report about Hong Kong. :D But this is Singapore, all that matters is we beat Hong Kong at something again!

It's time for another celebration.

Nak, the dance really a suitable expression. :lol:

But surely that can't be true - I keep reading about how 'green' and 'sustainable' Singapore is. Those pesky HKers and WWF trouble-makers must be wrong. :twisted:

By the time you take the Islands and New Territories into account, HK has some pretty huge green spaces though not all agricultural.

Having lived in one of the largest country parks in the country for many years, SG was quite a large step DOWN in terms of countryside. I did just make it over to Pulau Ubin a couple of weeks ago, though, but if that's it, like MacRitchie, its very small.

Just think what we'll be like with nearly 7m population ;)
