Planet EARTH is in overdraft!
Earth is in overdraft just EIGHT months into the year: We've now exhausted our natural budget for land, trees and food, warn campaigners
21st August 2014
- The world has now reached 'Earth Overshoot Day' claim campaigners
- This is point in the year when humans have exhausted natural supplies
- For the rest of the year, food stocks and forests are being depleted, land degraded and carbon dioxide will build up in the atmosphere, they claim
- Problem is worsening, with Earth in 'ecological debt' earlier each year
