Our growing population

Population Change from 1900-2000


World energy consumption pattern

World Energy Consumption between 1800 - 1990

World Primary Energy Consumption since 1970, projected to 2025


Earth’s Shrinking Biosphere

Currently, the Earth is the only home we have

1900-2000 AD

With each new person added to our growing population, the amount of our living space decreases

Increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide

2000-about

365 ppm

Carbon dioxide levels have risen by 30% in the last 200 years.

The IPCC projects that, if unchecked, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations

will range from 650 to 970 ppm by 2100.

Much of the farmland surrounding the plant was heavily contaminated with radioactive nuclides and was subsequently abandoned


Dramatic changes in Huang He Delta, China

Images show the mouth of the Yellow River and the emergence of a huge parrot-headed peninsula

  • 1979-2000: Huang He’s yellow color is the result of huge loads of sediments


Changes in Huang He Delta, China

  • From 1989 to 1995 the Yellow River delta area grew

  • From 1995 to 2000 the Yellow River delta area shrank
