Still Overshooting

John Perry

Every year the Global Footprint Network calculates when we have collectively used a year's worth of the earth's resources. Last year we reached it one day sooner than in 2013. This year we've brought the date forward by six days, to 13 August. Of the countries with a biocapacity deficit, the UK is 12th (one place lower than the United States; the worst performer is the United Arab Emirates).

    Which is why I urge everyone to join the movement for 4More Planets -- (When 4More Planets come to pass ... 7 billion new members of the middle class!)

      dammit, why didn't I think of that?
