Overshoot day

Today is Overshoot day – the day on which this year’s resources of renewable assets rub out. In 2009 Overshoot day occurred more the a month earlier, on September 25th.

If everyone would live like Swedes, we would need three planets. More than five planets if the American lifestyle would spread globally.

Isn’t it awful? We can all do something so future generations can have a decent life!
