B for me. Must establish a link between what is important that the US does and the impact on Earth.

The assumption in this passage is that the US consumption is determinant. If they don't cut rising consumption the resources will deplete sooner or later.

Therefore, the best answer is B

One more vote for D.

The earth's resources are being depleted, and the United States must reduce the use of the resources.

But why the United States?

Because it uses MUCH of the earth's resources.

B as well. But I was thinking abt D too. Since the other nations are limiting their resource consumption, USA should contain it too!
