Election Day is World Overshoot Day

World Overshoot Day is the day when when human demand on nature surpasses what nature can renewably supply in a year. It has been falling progressively earlier for the last thirty years.

In 2010, by the Global Footprint Network's calculations, that day happens to fall on August 21.

This is the same day as the Australian federal election.
