This article highlights the effects of the increasing demand for resources and land use on sustainability of our ecosystems. The unbalanced stability of the long term versus short term capacity of the biosphere to provide services is questioned by evidence of biodiversity loss, climate change, decreased air and water quality, and other instances directly related to the increased use of land. The environmental impacts of land use ranges globally, from changes in atmospheric composition to the extensive modification of the Earth's ecosystems.
