Today is what the climate change/global warming alarmist have billed as “overshoot day,” and the hashtag contains quite the collection of leftist eco fear mongering.
Head on over to the #OvershootDay hashtag and enjoy the not-so-subtle "humans are a disease" propaganda. Brought to you by the same people who've been claiming we'll run out of oil for over a century.

Yep, for the rest of the year from this day forward, the world is dying, or something:
Today, 1st of August 2018, is #OvershootDay which means that we have emitted more CO₂ than the Earth can absorb in one year, we have fished more fish than the seas can give life to, chopped off more trees than what forests can produce. Until December 31st we live on credit. pic.twitter.com/8DIkNGt2Rd

Earth Overshoot Day, the annual date on which humanity's use of natural resources exceeds what the planet can regenerate in that year, this year falls on August 1 #OvershootDay pic.twitter.com/HeHGoWMtsw

That means humans have officially used more natural resources in 2018 than the Earth can renew this year.
It's August 1st.https://t.co/y5f02KlPdV

Overpopulation is what drives EVERY Major problem on this planet. In the last 100 years, 1 long lifetime,we've gone from 1 Billion to 7.5 BILLION People and more Every Day. We NEVER ACT until we're on the Damn Precipice. https://t.co/swt3XdP0Uf

So sad and disgusting that humanity really has come this far, we're going to kill the planet. Or it'll kill us trying to save itself. https://t.co/Zn8ZMU3AtN

And of course it gets earlier every year:
It's getting earlier and earlier, which isn't surprising, but also VERY bad news. https://t.co/vfO6xS0xgX

How does the Earth know to reset its planetary resources every January 1st? Mother Earth is indeed brilliant.
But others are rolling their eyes, even though the lefties will probably blame the skepticism on climate change:
This is embarrassing.

Overshoot Day was just dreamed up by the Hallmark Corporation to sell more Overshoot Day cards. https://t.co/68ZWopUoW4

Overshoot Day will only somehow magically come at a later date once a “green stimulus” Democrat gets elected president and rejoins the Paris Agreement.
