08/04/2023 Earth Overshoot Day

Although Croatia entered the period of ‘ecological debt’ on May 29 this year, the global Earth Overshoot Day falls on August 2. Living in ecological debt means taking nature away from future generations. Earth Overshoot Day is the day in a year when our annual demand for and consumption of natural resources overshoots what planet Earth can produce or renew in one year. As WWF Adria state, the reason behind this is the fact that we release more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than our oceans and forests can absorb; we exhaust fish stock faster than it can be replenished, and we cut forests faster than they can grow back. The consequences are extreme heat waves, ravaging forest fires, devastating floods, and dramatic draughts, all of which are becoming more frequent worldwide.
