looking for resources on global consumption
I am trying to write a thesis which touches upon resource depletion, amongst other things. I am looking for some reasonably current resources which show estimates of consumption of major materials like steel, glass, plastics, copper, etc. The usual wiki and google searches haven’t gotten me very far. I already have figures for oil and lumber. There is a fairly good site-
which gives me stats on paper and paperboard, and they have a book that summarizes others for $18- but I’m thinking there has to be some free online sources.
