We Are Officially In Ecological Overdraft

According to Global Footprint Network humanity’s demand for natural resources exceeds the earth’s ability to renew them in a year. Very sadly we are already officially in ecological overdraft. Scientists calculate “Earth Overshoot Day” by dividing the earth’s current biocapacity (the area of land and water available to produce renewable resources and absorb CO2 emissions) by the world’s ecological footprint (the area of land and water required to meet humanity’s demand for resources and absorb waste), and then they multiply the quotient by 365. This number reveals “Earth Overshoot Day” and the grave concern is that this year “Earth Overshoot Day” arrived two days sooner than it did last year. According to scientists, “Earth Overshoot Day” has come earlier by about three days each year since 2001.

Please visit The Day the Earth Ran Out:
How can we call ourselves good stewards of God’s Creation when the Earth and its inhabitants are being devastated by the consequences of our bad choices? The Earth can produce enough for everyone if we do our best to live in harmony and in a sustainable manner. Adopting a plant-based diet helps us in both ways.
