What’s going on with our Mother Earth?

Have you ever wondered about the world we live in? 

We’re sure you have. That’s the beauty of this age that we live in. Now more than ever, information is in your fingertips. You can find out anything about everything, anytime.

Just as you’d be interested to know that we travel around the sun faster than a speeding bullet, and that the Earth is not really a perfect sphere, we’re sure you’d also like to know what’s going on here on the planet itself. 

The World Counts have all the data you need about the different topics that are rousing the interest of a lot of people today.

Here are excerpts of some of the most amazing facts on Earth that can be found at The World Counts:

  • Coral Reefs are the biggest ecosystems on Earth, rivaling our Rainforests. They are the largest living structures visible from space. More: Threats on Coral Reefs
  • The Ozone Layer “Hole” that was discovered in Antarctica was 29 million square kilometers! But it’s now healing due to the global effort that banned the use of chloroflurocarbon (CFC) and hydro chlorofluorocarbon (GCFC). In the next 55 years, it is expected that our global ozone will be back to normal. More: Ozone Layer Depletion Facts
  • We only have 2.5% of freshwater to drink. Yet, on a daily basis, we use 10 billion tons of freshwater daily, worldwide. 97.5% of the Earth’s water is salt water. More: Average Daily Water Usage
  • By the year 2030, we might only have 10% of Rainforests left and it can all disappear in a hundred years. 70% of our world’s plant and animal species live in forests. More: Deforestation Facts and Statistics
