Today is overshoot day

According to the Footprint Network, today is ‘Overshoot day’: “the day when humanity begins living beyond its ecological means. Beyond that day, we move into the ecological equivalent of deficit spending, utilizing resources at a rate faster than what the planet can regenerate in a calendar year.”

See the Footprint Network website for more on this rather unfortunate milestone.
