Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The global overshoot indicated by Ecological Footprint calculations consists entirely of an unreliable reframing of human carbon emissions and none of the five other land-use categories-cropland, grazing land, built-up land, fishing grounds, and forests. The Ecological Footprint is therefore "so misleading as to preclude its use in any serious science or policy context," argue Blomqvist et al. in this perspective.
