As we are devastating the planet at an alarming rate, it is all the more tragic that scientists have made the discovery that the earth has something that resembles an actual heartbeat!
According to a study published in the journal Nature , most of the unspoiled nature areas with more than 70 percent on earth is in the territory of only five countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Russia, and the USA. Those land and sea areas of the planet where humanity has barely intervened cover only a quarter of the earth’s surface.
All in all, only 23 percent of the earth’s land mass, that is less than one quarter is unspoilt and only a startling 13 percent if the seas are taken into account. As a matter of fact, one tenth of the destruction of earth’s wilderness has taken place just over the past two decades.
An amazing animation by Worldmapper shows us how plants act as biomass factories as the “fuel of life” resembling the pattern of heartbeat.
A study published at the beginning of 2018 in Science Advances analyzed how long it would take to reach the tipping point at which the Amazon Rainforest would reach “the point of no return” and water cycles of the rainforest supporting the ecosystem would no longer be viable because of deforestation and climate change.
In June 2016, Costa Rica announced plans to become the first carbon-neutral nation in the world by 2021 . Studies have shown that plants in this area have the capacity to process more than 100 tons of CO2 per hectare annually, with an additional 2.7 metric tons per hectare if the forest remains in pristine condition.
