Today is Earth Overshoot Day

The 22nd of August 2020 was the Earth Overshoot Day.

What does it mean?

As of that date, the World has already consumed all the natural resources that the Earth can produce in a year. (Water, oil, clean air, etc.)

This means that we are now living on credit until the end of the year, spending natural resources much faster than the Earth can produce them.

The good news? Last year the overshoot day was the 29th July 2019, which means that COVID had a positive impact on the environment this year. But will it last?

This date is a global date.
