Today is Earth #OvershootDay. It is a day when we already consumed all the biological resources that Earth can renew during the entire year.

Now we need 1.6 #earths to meet our annual demand. Alarming !!
We all consume un-equal resources. Example if all population consumed like USA then overshoot day would by 14th March. It shows inequality prevailing around the globe. This year we are able to push overshoot day due to pandemic led low consumption. But we need long term plans.
So if all consumed like USA we needed 5 earth to cater the demand. Developing countries are consuming less. Post pandemic we have a chance to take a new & sustainable path. To push the day.
In this year we consumed which is produced by 1.6 earths. Just imagine. Soon we need to 2 earths with business as usual, and then more than that also. The reserves are also depleting.
