July 14, 2015 marked the Day of the Ecological Deficit in United States. The country United has exceeded the use of natural resources for this year. The annual demand of the country for goods and services that the land and oceans can provide such as agricultural products, fish, wood, raw material for clothing  exceeded the renewal capacity of the American ecosystems.
The ability of carbon to absorb nature has been exceeded.
Similar to a person who comes into debt with a credit card, the second richest nation in the world is in ecological deficit.
When the ecosystems of the United States and  world are no longer able to recover to provide necessary goods and services, there will be a time of shortages of all kinds.
