Tropical Rainforests Almost the Size of India Will Be Lost by 2050. But Here's How YOU Can Stop It. Using satellite imagery and data from 100 countries, the Washington-based Center for Global Development has predicted that 289 million hectares (715 million acres) of tropical forests would be axed by 2050 – that’s an area the size of India, or four times the size of the US state of Texas.

Tropical Rainforests Almost the Size of India Will Be Lost by 2050. But Here's How YOU Can Stop It

Scientists Jonah Busch and Jens Engelmann, project that this tropical deforestation will release 169 GtCO2 into the atmosphere from 2016-2050 — one-sixth of the remaining carbon that can be emitted if the rise in the Earth’s temperature is to be held below 2 °C (the equivalent of running 44,000 coal-fired power plants for a year). However, they also say much of the losses can be avoided if world leaders put a price on carbon emissions through taxes, payments for emissions reductions, or find a way to limit deforestation.

“Conserving tropical forests is a bargain. Reducing emissions from tropical deforestation costs about a fifth as much as reducing emissions in the European Union. Fukushima: The Extinction-Level Event That No One Is Talking About [Video] - ORGANIC AND HEALTHY. One repercussion of this has been the pollution of radioactive waste into the sea.

Fukushima: The Extinction-Level Event That No One Is Talking About [Video] - ORGANIC AND HEALTHY

It is thought that hundreds of tons of radioactive waste has been pumped inot the sea every day ever since. The nuclear waste has penetrated the Japanese food chain and has been detected in food over 200 miles away. In 2015 Akira Ono the chief of the Fukushima power station said that there was no known way of decommissioning the power station and stopping the waste leakage. Officials have claimed that while there is a definite leakage, they say it is not doing any actual harm to the environment, but the stats claim another story. American scientists have been study what is effectively the 'death' of the pacific, where marine life is dying off at an alarming rate.Krill, one of the key players in the sea-life food chain has been found washed up in vast numbers, and bodies of seals and sea lions are repeatedly washed up on shores.

Scientists have discovered that living near trees is good for your health

(STEPHANIE LECO/European Pressphoto Agency) In a new paper published Thursday, a team of researchers present a compelling case for why urban neighborhoods filled with trees are better for your physical health. The research appeared in the open access journal Scientific Reports. The large study builds on a body of prior research showing the cognitive and psychological benefits of nature scenery — but also goes farther in actually beginning to quantify just how much an addition of trees in a neighborhood enhances health outcomes.

Will Humans Survive the Sixth Great Extinction? In the last half-billion years, life on Earth has been nearly wiped out five times—by such things as climate change, an intense ice age, volcanoes, and that space rock that smashed into the Gulf of Mexico 65 million years ago, obliterating the dinosaurs and a bunch of other species.

Will Humans Survive the Sixth Great Extinction?

These events are known as the Big Five mass extinctions, and all signs suggest we are now on the precipice of a sixth. Except this time, we have no one but ourselves to blame. According to a study published last week in Science Advances, the current extinction rate could be more than 100 times higher than normal—and that’s only taking into account the kinds of animals we know the most about. Earth’s oceans and forests host an untold number of species, many of which will probably disappear before we even get to know them.
