Earth Overshoot Day

23 March @ 12:00 pm12:30 pm

Liturgy and tolling of the bells

St Andrew’s will again mark the date of Earth Overshoot Day. This is the day when humanity’s demand for ecological resources and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. We maintain this deficit by liquidating stocks of ecological resources and accumulating waste, primarily carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

What would the global Earth Overshoot Day be if the whole world had the consumption rate of Australia? The answer this year is 23 March 2022. How do we compare with other countries? The infographic below illustrates our position in the world. It shows that we are one of the worst countries in the world.

You can find out more about earth overshoot day and how we can all respond in this article by Anglican Focus.
