Real-time global environmental statistics. So numbers might change after this post have been published.
Hectares of forest loss this year
Hectares of arable land lost due to soil erosion
Species that have gone extinct (this year)
Tons of toxic chemicals released by industries into air, land, and water
Billion liters of water consumption this year
Deaths due to water related diseases this year
People with no access to drinking water
These are statistics that impacted our everyday life. For example, toxic dumps into the air can cause severe illness, poisoning, birth defects, disease or death. Water is another one. We tend to take water for granted over here when people on the other side of the world have no access to drinking water.
On the other hand, there are opportunities for different kind of business models and to innovate.
Okay, nuff said. There’s more real-time statistics that you can dig in at Worldometers.
