Overshoot day

Filed under: personal — Freek D'Hooge @ 21:59

Today, 23/09 is Earth Overshoot Day. That is the day we have used up more natural resources then the Earth can regenerate in one year.
Currently we are using 1.4 planets to support our lifestyle, resulting in a decrease of our supply of natural resources.

Maybe it’s not a bad idea to make a simular calculation for the resource usage on our databases and present the results to developers   :)
