Tragedy of the Commons?

Thinking more about denial ... I see the UN has a fairly worrying report out today that aptly reinforces the challenges facing us all.

BBC website covers the story here and the full UN report is here. The BBC website also has some pretty depressing graphics here.

You can't help but be reminded of Garrett Hardin's "Tragedy of the Commons" when you look at this report's conclusions.
