Yesterday was “Earth Overshoot Day,” aka Ecological Debt Day. I had never heard of it before. It apparently has something to do with carbon dioxide emissions, which is what made me think that it’s somehow related to my post yesterday about the EPA’s Clean Power Plan. That plan is about carbon dioxide emissions, even if it sounds like something else.
The idea, apparently, is that humanity is using more natural resources in a given year than the earth can produce. That's bad, I guess. Too bad more people don’t think the same view is relevant to the expenditures of the world’s governments exceeding their revenues year after year.
