This year, Earth Overshoot Day comes two days earlier than it did last year – its earliest date since it was first marked in 2006, in October. Since then, the world has been using up its yearly provision at an ever-increasing rate; we currently use 1.7 Earths per year. – 最近五个最好的艺术家项目展示了不可持续实践的替代品是“地球过冲日”,这意味着人类自1月1日以来使用的自然资源比整个地球一年都能再生。今年,地球超调日比去年提前了两天,这是自十月首次在2006开始的最早日期。从那时起,世界一直在以每年不断增加的速度使用它,我们目前每年使用1.7个地球。
