Geography and Footprints
From today we start eating the planet.
A fascinating and disturbing article on the BBC NEWS website explains that today is the day that we exceed the planet's capacity to provide for us without being damaged in the process.

A particular stark image is that shown below, which is produced by the New Economics Foundation, who have been responsible for some of the most innovative and interesting research in the last few years, including a report on CLONE TOWNS, which spawned a big page on the GeographyPages website as well as an addition to our L6 fieldtrip.


Perhaps it's time we turned off the computer, stopped blogging and 'went back to the garden'...
