Earth Overshoot Day 2016

August 8th is Earth Overshoot Day. This is the day when humanity’s global demand for ecological resources and services for the year exceeds the planet’s ability to replenish its natural capital. Or to put it another way, it is comparable to living off of a credit card, except in this case we are living off of an ecological credit card and reaching the point where we can’t pay off our debt to nature.
