Why Should We Worry About Earth Overshoot Day? | SHE-ensya Lecture Series (Environment)

Hello Science Fans!

We had Earth Overshoot Day last July 29, 2021, and out of all environmental events — this is one that we are not supposed to celebrate.

In this video, we talk about what Earth Overshoot Day is, and the mechanisms that allow us to predict the day when we have consumed all renewable resources for the year. Each year, it seems we are making things worse but I hope we can still be hopeful and do our best to adjust!

If you want to learn about how our lifestyles consume Earth’s resources, then please watch this video!
