Global Footprint Network 2012
Under pressure to grow GDP each year, nations continue to overuse and sell-off their limited natural resources to increase economic expansion. As populations grow and the Earth’s resources are constrained, the effects can become disastrous.

Countries that integrate the organization’s results, and other Footprint tools, into their economic policy have a much better chance to succeed in a world of limited resources.

Global Footprint Network 2010
The world's population demands the resources of 1.5 Earths annually. If everyone lived like the United States, it would be 5 Earths. Global Footprint Network is a think-tank and team of "ecological accountants" measuring human pressure on the planet.

Earth Overshoot Day, which was September 27th this year, marks an unfortunate milestone: the day in which we exhaust our ecological budget for the
year. Once we pass this day, humanity will have demanded all the ecological services—from filtering CO2 to producing the raw materials for food—
that nature can provide this
year. From that point until
the end of the year, we meet
our ecological demand by liquidating resource stocks
and accumulating carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
