Earth Overshoot Day

This is really interesting... check out this post at They talk about the fact that each year, we consume more resources than the planet produces each year, so we end up finishing each year by dipping into the resources of the future (kind of like spending more than you earn, and making ends meet with credit while you accumulate more debt).

They refer to the point in the year when our consumption passes the planets' production as "Earth Overshoot Day", and each year it gets earlier and earlier.


If their sources were accurate, this is interesting and quite a wake up call...
