Earth Overshoot Day?

Fascinating article about how many people the earth can support.  Are we depleting resources faster than we can replenish them?  Are we ultimately looking at some sort of mass extinction as a result?

Perhaps the discussion of climate change is missing the main point.  Maybe we should be thinking more generally about the carrying capacity of the earth.

And what's the deal with Australians living more extravagantly than we are here in the U.S.?   :)
