Study: Divorcers Cluttering Up Planet

Item: Divorce bad for planet, study says: Break-ups result in more land, material use/Dallas Morning News

More Info: An analysis of data on domestic relations and resource use in the U.S. and 11 other countries shows that divorce leads to more households – so more land gets built up and more building materials are used. They concluded that in the U.S. circa 2000, there were about 6 million “extra” households due to divorce.
