Earth is the living planet. Our planet provides human populations with everything they need to live, but the earth's resources are not infinite. Many of the resources that we need are not renewable and once they are gone, they are gone forever.

As the earth's population approaches 10 billion people, space for them in developed areas is running out. The Goliath Global Development Company has petitioned the United Nations for permission to begin developing preserved wilderness biomes around the world. Before voting on Goliath's request, the UN wants to hear from environmental experts on each of the threatened biomes as to the possible consequences of such actions.
