Quotes from the news wire:
The EU uses up almost 20 percent of the Earth's bio-capacity although it comprises only 7 percent of the world population, in other words, 2.8 planets would be needed if everyone consumed at the rate of the average EU resident. This is well above the world average which is approximately 1.7 planets.
If everybody in the world had the same ecological footprint as an average EU resident - emitting as much carbon, consuming as much food, timber and fibers, and occupying as much built up space - May 10th would be the date by which humanity would have used as much from nature than our planet can renew in a whole year, for the rest of the year, humanity would have to live off depleting the natural capital of the Earth.
