Earth Overshoot Day

April 26, 2011
I found this article on Wikipedia about Earth Overshoot Day or Ecological Debt Day. Basically it is the day each year where the people of Earth enter a period of “deficit spending” of natural resources. Each year the date falls earlier and earlier, signifying humanity’s overconsumption of Earth’s available natural resources. What happens when we get to Jan 01? How long does humanity have left, really?
Not to scare you or anything.
The Ecological Debt Day for 2010 was August 21; 2009 was September 25.
Time to start practicing sustainability!
