Passage #464: 1 August 2018
Happy Overshoot Day! As of August 1, 2018, the people of Earth have consumed all of this year's ecological resources. That is to say, our collective ecological footprint has exceeded the biocapacity of the planet for the entire calendar year, which means... well, yeah, it's one of those awkward UN metrics that nobody really feels in their gut, but which is supposed to make you think critically about how we (as a society) and you (personally) use more than is really necessary. So think about that for a little bit.
