It's Here ! Aug. 1st - Earth Overshoot Day
« on: July 24, 2018, 11:34:36 AM »
Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when we (all of humanity) have used more from nature than our planet can renew in the entire year.

So much talk about the End of the World most never realizing the very life style and standard of living we live in the 21st Century is hastening the end for Humanity. Are You aware of Earth Overshoot Day, if not you should be, so this August 1st take a minute and think about how much you are requiring of the Earth for your standard of living.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Great find, AZ. I didn't know.

I didn't mean thumbs up to the event, just awareness of it.

Yeah, this is huge especially recalling events like the first Earth Day...
