As a global community, and environment


Senior Member
Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

She would condition all U.S. foreign aid to developing countries on their making progress on gender equality, and on access for every woman who wants it to family planning technology. As a global community, and environment, we simply can’t afford the population explosions that, in combination with climate change, desertification, and civil strife, are making more and more swaths of the world uninhabitable.

Does "As a global community, and environment" refer to the whole world or only to the US?

Thank you.
