But we still have a long way to go... 20% of consume 80% of the world's resources and create 83% the world's population of the world's waste తెరె తెర TTPT TTTTTTTTTT TTT TTTT 111 TTT తెర TTTT TTTT TTTTTTTTTT TTTT తెరె తెరెె TTTT TTTTTTTTTP తెల In the past 50 years, humans have consumed more resources than in all previous history! The world's biodiversity is down 30% since the 1970s, with tropical species taking the biggest hit. 25% of creatures may become extinct due to climate change by 210o! can sequester 120-150 tons of CO2 40% of the world's industrial logging goes into making paper, and this is expected to reach 50% in the near future. acre of rainforest BUT.. 50 million acres of forests are cut down each year. Almost twice the size of Iceland! Recycling just one tin can saves enough electricity to light a 100-watt bulb for 3.5 hours. Each year North America produces enough garbage to fill 25.5 million garbage trucks. Lined up bumper to bumper they would stretch halfway to the moon. 20 days of sunlight generates more energy than can be produced by all the non-renewable reserves of the world (ie. petroleum, coal, and natural gas). If a person yelled for 8 years, 7 months, and 6 days, he or she would only produce enough energy to heat one cup of coffee. X1 8 YEARS 20 = TOTAL But it's not all bad. Things are starting to change for the better as countries and companies invest in sustainability. Invest in our future! 2010 was the first year when global investments in renewable energy surpassed investments in fossil fuels. Renewable energy sources like solar, wind and biomass could answer up to 77% of our needs by the middle of this century. Clean and safe wind farms already produce about 1.5% of the electricity consumed globally. That rate is much higher in certain countries: 77% 1.5% In 2012, Tokelau will be the first nation to be completely run on renewable energy sources.
