The global population has been living beyond its means since last month, according to calculations by environmental organizations.
In the period from January 1 to August 8, mankind apparently consumed more resources than the earth can regenerate in the entire year. We will be living on existing reserves for the rest of the year, according to the environmental activists.
This year marks the earliest Earth Overshoot Day in history. The earth’s resources apparently lasted five days longer in 2015. This, according to the environmental groups, is far from sustainable.
