counting backwards, derrick jensen, earth overshoot day, post-growth
Well the good news is that Earth Overshoot Day arrived later this year on August the 22nd than it did in 2019 on July the 29th. The bad news is that this is due to COVID, not because of much concerted effort on part of the dominant economic paradigm. Earth Overshoot Day is always a sobering, soul-searching time for host Michael Bayliss, so what better way to go about it than to soul-search with one of the most thoughtful and articulate (and famous) environmentalist and authors of our time, Derrick Jensen?
