Why we don’t take on projects that destroy the planet

An overview of reasons you already know

  • The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has never been higher
  • The sea level rose 8 inches in the last century. The last two decades it has risen to almost double of that
  • The temperature has risen about 1.1 degrees Celsius since the late 19th century, where 16 of the 17 warmest years on record occurred since 2001
  • The oceans have absorbed much of this heat
  • The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets have decreased in mass. Glaciers are retreating everywhere in the world
  • Every year an area of rainforest equal to half the size of England is cut. At this rate, in 100 years there will be no rainforest left
  • Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by about 30%
  • The increase in world population in the last century was three times greater than the entire previous history of humanity - an increase from 1.5 to 6.1 billion in just 100 years
