Humanity depletes Earth’s yearly budget in less than 8 months
In less than eight months Earth has managed to use up an entire year’s worth of environmental resources and each year it is happening sooner. This means that for the rest of the year we will be drawing credit on resources that we have, in effect borrowing from the Earth. The Global Footprint Network measures this demand and charts our generation of carbon dioxide and the results are alarming.
