We have started eating the planet

This refers to Ecological Debt Day which apparently this year fell on 9th October.

The day symbolises the day of the year when people's demands exceeded the Earth's ability to supply resources and absorb the demands placed upon it.
The worlds first "ecological debt day" fell on 19 December 1987 and since then it has only got worse

by 1990 it fell on 7th December, by 1995 it fell on 21st November, by 2000 it fell on 1st November and by 2005 it fell on 11th October.
