Earth Overshoot Day 2015
by Alexandre Magnin, Canada

In this video, I explain our Ecological Footprint and Earth Overshoot Day with a particular focus on carbon emissions and the United Nations talks about climate change (COP 21) in Paris in December 2015. Our Ecological Footprint is how much we demand from nature. Currently, humanity is using the equivalent of 1.6 planets.Every year, Global Footprint Network calculates Earth Overshoot Day. It marks the date when humanity’s demand on nature exceeds what the Earth can regenerate in that year.
