Unsustainable Sydney 

A report has come out saying that the lifestyle in Sydney, Australia is not sustainable. A quote from the article:

"Sydney, Australia is regularly voted one of the world's best cities to live in, but a new environment report has warned its affluent lifestyle is ecologically unsustainable. The 2003 environment report on the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) says Sydney residents are wasting millions of gallons of water, demanding ever more electricity and remain car obsessed, increasing greenhouse gas emissions."

Now call me crazy, but couldn't this describe a vast majority of cities in the US? When are we going to see a study like this regarding a US city or the US itself? I guess it's ok for Aussies to criticize their own lifestyle. I don't know how well that would go over here.
