Earth Overshoot Day occurred on Monday 29 July this year. It is the calculated illustrative calendar date on which humanity’s resource consumption for the year exceeds Earth’s capacity to regenerate those resources that year.
We went to a local church to ring the church bell in alarm and sorrow that this day had occurred so early this year.
The ringing of the bell made me wonder how long it will take before there is no sickness or sorrow because there is no-one left to be sick or sorrowful.
The ringing made me wonder how long it will take before there is no joy because there is no-one left who can feel joy.
In my darkest moment I wondered whether the last human to die has already been born.
