State of the States: A new perspective on the ecological wealth of our nation
July 14, 2015
Twitter Chat at #USAfootprint
9 am PST/ Noon EST
On July 14, Global Footprint Network will release its first-ever analysis of the Ecological Footprint of the 50 United States in a report called "State of the States: A new perspective on the ecological wealth of our nation." The population of the United States is using twice the renewable natural resources and services that can be regenerated within its borders. But which states are the most resource-constrained? And which states are the most resource-abundant?
Join Global Footprint Network, TriplePundit, Earth Economics, and the Risky Business Project for a Twitter Chat that will focus on the significance of July 14th, which marks the day the United States has busted its annual ecological budget, utilizing more resources and services than the nation’s ecosystems can regenerate within the full year.
New to Twitter Chats? Don’t worry! Read this. To participate, send out the following tweet: Join @EndOvershoot @EarthEconomics @ClimateRisk & @TriplePundit at #USAfootprint to discuss the USA’s footprint, 7/14 http://bit.ly/USAfootprint
