The images below are the story. Interesting topic here and one I am on always, I love or dislike researching what is happening to our home, many say the World is over populated but we must see an image of the World at night to understand that is a lie, the Earth is less than 20% populated by Human’s and the Animal Kingdom, seriously, let that into your mind. Our Earth is alive without us, take all living live be them human or from the Animal kingdom from our home and she is alive, our World is now showing us and telling us a story. Is it climate change or man made? For me it’s an unknown, we are too young a species to know all the answers to our home and the celestial bodies around us in our street the Solar System. We must at least look at this and understand then accept it. Are we to blame? Yes, we ALL treat our home like it’s a given, it will always be, it is safe. Sadly that is not correct. So, over populated yeah? Wrong! And let the images below show you how fast our home all 7 Billion of us share is dying slowly. The total surface area of the world is 510.072 million sq km, land surface area comes up to 148.94 million sq km which is equal to 1.60317527 × 10^15 sq feet. 70.8% of the world’s surface is water, 29.2% is land, 1.60317527 × 1 000 000 000 000 000 (sq feet) / 6.48 billion = 22 984.5457 m2. Then convert 22 984.5457 meters ^2 and divide by 0.09290304. (1 sq foot= 0.09290304 m^2) For this question I guess you need to divide 1.60317527 × 10^15 sq feet by 1 sq foot, as 1.60317527 × 10^15 sq feet of the Earth can be inhabitable. So what is the population of the human race? Estimate is currently at 6,942,773,884 (Almost 7 Billion peopl on Earth) so it could be less than 10% that us humans populate on our home. Interesting and important at the same time in terms of having knowledge and confirmed numbers to crunch, I think so anyway
We have been sleeping all these years, and it’s the time to wake up. The ozone layer is evaporating, and polar caps are melting, causing erratic weather patterns and dramatic rise in sea level. Thanks to us, we are happily contributing in suffocating our planet, making it count its last breaths. We may enjoy our life to its fullest, leaving this planet good for nothing for our future generations. Here are some before and after pictures regarding global warming for a reality check.
1. The Enterprise Bridge Passes Over A Section Of Lake Oroville In 2011 (left) And 2014 (right) In Oroville, California, Which Is Experiencing “Exceptional” Drought.
Due to global warming, California has faced one of the worst floods of all times which has resulted in the change of landscape and loss of gallons of fresh water
According to the Climatologists, Artic will have entirely ice-free summers by 2040. The Artic region is home to almost 4 million people. Whether patterns, including Hurricane, can be predicted by understanding weather patterns in the Arctic.
3. Bleaching Of The Great Barrier Reef, 2002 And 2014
The great barrier reef, which is home to thousands of species is in a great danger. The growth and reproduction of the species are affected by the thermal stress that is caused by an increase in temperature of the sea. Also, in 2002 The great barrier reef suffered from 50% bleaching, in 2012 it went up to 75%.
4. The San Blas Archipelago In Panama: 2002 and 2014
Entire islands are being wiped out, rising sea levels have led to mass property destruction. It is also forcing Panama’s most well-known indigenous groups to relocate from their autonomous island territories to the mainland.
5. Aral Sea, 1989 And 2014
6. 1926 And 2008: Grinnell Glacier In Montana
7. 1880s And 2005: Alaskan Muir Glacier And Inlet
Bruce Molnia, who created a project to take repeat photographs of Alaskan glaciers. Making various trips to the glacier, he took a photo from the same location each time to photographically document the retreat of the glacier. The project showed that the glacier has retreated to a shocking 50 kilometres.
8. 1930s And 2005: Alaskan Pedersen Glacier
Due to the melting of glaciers, the water level has decreased and the surface area of the land has decreased. Glaciers are considered to be source of freshwater but after melting they will mix into the sea and end up being polluted.
