Today is cause for celebration, because it’s that special day that comes once a year – no it’s not Christmas (a stranger just told me we have 145 days until that (I haven’t checked to see if that’s correct)); today is Earth Overshoot Day!!!
Earth Overshoot Day is that day when civilisations consumption surpasses that which the planet can consume in a year. It is a day that should remind us of the violence that is the day to day normality of this culture. It is a tragic day.
