This was an exercise I used to do with my students about ten years ago, and it’ s really amazing to see how much the graphics have improved in that time.  You don’t have to register or sign up in anyway for the site and it only takes a couple of minutes to click through the simulation and find out how your personal usage relates to resource usage, or in their terms, if everyone lived like you, how many earths we would need, have fun with it:
