Number of planet Earths we need
to provide resources and absorb our waste
Take a journey with us as we highlight the most amazing facts about Earth – our Home. We may be separated by countries and continents, but the whole of humanity shares a common space. A little blue ball floating in space, accompanied by its sister moon – the Earth, the 3rd planet from the Sun.
That there are 4 features that make the Earth special and unique. These 4 things are the reasons why it is able to harbor life – while other planets can’t.
The Perfect Planet for Life
But what makes the Earth so amazing is that it harbors Life – Intelligent Life at that. It seem to have all the ingredients necessary for beings like us to flourish. Not just one-celled organisms, but beings that can wonder at life itself.
According to Bill Bryson in his book - A Short History of Nearly Everything:
“We may be the universe’s greatest achievement and it’s worth nightmare at the same time. We are so remarkably careless about looking after things, both alive and not. We have no idea, none at all, about how many things have died off or will soon die off – and what role we played in any part of the process.
We do not know when we started doing many of the things we’ve done, and how our present actions will affect the future exactly. What we do know is there is only one planet to do it o and only one species that can make a considerable difference.”
Our Earth is really an amazing planet, more so because it has you and me that can talk about it and wonder. It has allowed us to exist and evolve so we can have the ability to appreciate it in many ways and make it better. It’s a skill that we’re only starting to realize and act upon.
