I hate to be the bearer of bad news but “we failed again.” This past Monday was “Earth Overshoot Day.” Never heard of it? Maybe you know it by its old name. It used to be called Ecological Debt Day.
In any event, this past Monday was the day humanity officially used up more resources than the earth can replenish annually. Supposedly.
The Huffing-and-Puffington Post summed up the dire nature of your collective failure this way: “We’ve already used up earth’s resources” for this year. “And it’s only August.”
Do you people understand what this means? For the rest of the year, each and every one you will be consuming resources you shouldn’t. You’ll be taking resources that belong to future generations. That’s right. Every time you turn on the lights, use the sink, ask the grocer for a paper bag or drive your car, you’re using resources you don’t own. You’re a failure. And a thief.
There’s worse news. In 1971, Earth Overshoot Day was on December 24th. Christmas Eve. But thanks to your never-ending greed, your inability to control yourselves you people are using up Mother Earth’s gifts at an alarming rate.
If this doesn’t stop, you’ll strip Mother Earth bare and find out what it’s like to live in a world with no resources at all! I’m so ashamed. Of you. When will you people freaking learn? You’re stealing your kids future, even their lightbulbs!
