Earth Overshoot Day – EU & USA kill planet

Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year. We are using 1.7 Earths.

We use more ecological resources and services than nature can regenerate through overfishing, overharvesting forests, and emitting more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than ecosystems can absorb.

Finland and Sweden and the rest of the EU and the USA are both doing badly on this metric…

We need to do much more… see https://www.overshootday.org
