Hello February! Hope everybody is doing well. Happy ne year, hope your 2024 started of good. Will be opening this year at Green Promise with giving you ,#didyouknow
1.78% of marine mammals are at risk of choking on plastic
2.Humans use only 1% of all available water yet 71% of the earth is water .The oceans hold approximately 96.5% of this water and the ice caps hold about 2%. The remaining water exists in rivers, ponds, glaciers, ice caps, lakes, as water vapor and our taps, among other water bodies. Only 1% of the earth’s water is safe for human consumption.
3.Fungi play a highly vital role in the environment From digesting minerals out of rock formations to consuming fossil fuel spills, and even de-radiating the environment.
4.Tap water is undrinkable in China. The majority of major Chinese cities have high levels of water pollution and is deemed unfit for drinking purposes. 85% of Shanghai’s water supply is polluted and 95% of Tianjin’s is similarly unclean. Even in Beijing, 40% of their water is graded to be unsuitable for human contact.
5.Around 27,000 trees are cut down each day. The world has over 3.04 trillion trees in the world. However, 27,000 of them are cut down daily to make toilet paper. This translates to about 9.8 million trees annually. One single recycled edition of the New York Times newspaper could save 75,000 trees.
6.Paper from trees can be recycled 6 times. Paper comes from trees and can be recycled a maximum of six times, after which, its fibres become too weak to hold together. It means if the daily run of any country’s popular magazine or newspaper was to be recycled, it could save about 75,000 trees.
7.The earth is killing humans. Humans are responsible for the toxic air, water, and soil, among other levels of pollution. In turn, over nine million people die every year as a direct or indirect result of the pollution. The figures are three times the total deaths from AIDs, malaria, and tuberculosis combined.
8.Earthquakes are explained as part of the planets’ natural geography, and they are very had to predict. Earthquakes and tremors are a natural part of the geography of the planet. Although it is possible to measure them, predicting them is a bit hard.
9.There’s more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere than at any time in human history. The Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii has been tracking Earth’s atmospheric concentration of CO2 since the late 1950s. In 2022, the global average concentration it recorded was 417.06 parts per million (ppm). Preindustrial levels were 278 ppm, which means that humans are halfway to doubling the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere compared to the period between 1750 and 1800.
10.We’re accelerating down the path to exceeding 1.5 degrees Celsius of warming.In 2015, the nations behind the Paris Agreement set an ambitious target for keeping global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius. The latest IPCC report spells out just how difficult it will be for the world to stay under that limit unless we drastically slash emissions now. The report models five different future emission scenarios—from very high emissions to very low emissions—and in each scenario global surfaces are expected to hit at least 1.5 degrees.
