It’s Earth Overshoot Day today. An incredible day for all the wrong reasons.
Because today, humans living on this planet have finished consuming the Earth’s ability to produce clean air, water and other natural resources for the whole of 2017.
For the whole of 2017 — this is the important bit. We’re only at the second day of August, and we’ve consumed more resources than the Earth can renew through its natural processes — for the whole of 2017. That’s the scary part!
