Mathis Wackernagel, co-creator of the Ecological Footprint., explains the how and the why of this useful resource accounting tool that measures human demand on the Earth. The Footprint documentd whether we are living within our ecological budget or consuming nature's resources faster than the planet can renew them. For the first time, humanity is in "ecological overshoot" with annual demand on resources exceeding what Earth can regenerate each year. Most countries are running ecological deficits, with Footprints larger than their own biological capacity. Wackernagel explores the implications of these ecological deficits, and provides examples of how governments, communities and businesses are using the Footprint to help improve their ecological performance.
