Evening Standard: "Earth Overshoot Day: Humans use up allowance of Earth’s natural resources for entire year"

Link to web site

"Humans have already used up the allowance of Earth’s natural resources for the entire year.

"In just seven months, humanity has exhausted the amount of water, soil, clean air and other resources that the planet can generate in 2017, meaning from now until December all the energy we use is unsustainable in the long-term.

"The day marks the point when the amount of energy and resources humanity is using exceeds the amount Earth can replace in that year.

"The extra waste we now produce cannot be absorbed and will cause harm, and we are using too many other natural resources - like eating fish, plant-based food and meat - too quickly.

"... Overfishing, overharvesting forests and pumping out more carbon dioxide than plants can take are all reasons which contribute to humanity’s massive and growing ecological footprint."
