Breathing Earth – A Must See!

Breathing Earth
This site by far is one of my all time favorites. Whether your a strong advocate of Global Warming or not, this site will still be interesting to you. BreathingEarth.net is an interactive simulation of the world which shows you live coverage of  the worlds population, the birth rate and death rate, and the amount CO2 being emitted. You can mouse over any country in the world and view its population and CO2 statistics. For example, earlier today I moused over Japan. These are the Stats I got which fluctuated by the second:

Population: 127,107,186               1 Person Dies Every: 26.8 seconds               1 Person is Born Every: 31.5 seconds

1000 Tonnes of CO2 Emmited Every: 24.5 seconds               CO2 Emitted Per Person: 10.1 Tonnes / Year

The facts are interesting to see around the world. The simulator also calculates how long you have been on the site and will let you know how many births and deaths have occured since you have been watching, along with the amount of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. I watched for less than 20 minutes and more than 1.5 million tons had been emitted. UT OH! Check this site out, BreathingEarth.net, and if you want to learn about how much you personally are affectign the environment scroll down on BreathingEarth.net and click on”Footprint Network” (or just go to footprintnetwork.org/en/index.php/GFN/page/calculators/).

Water Footprint Network logoThis site is awesome because you can take a very short virtual quiz to find out how much you personally affect the enviornment. I found out that if every person on the planet lived my lifestyle it would take 9 planet earths worth of resources to support everyone..and I would consider my energy and resource usage to be average. I also found out that supporting my lifestle alone takes up about 39.8 global acres of land. Looks like its time for me to start getting a little more Green. I suggest you check out these sites and see how you can Help or at least get informed and watch a cool simulation ; )
