ON EARTH it took 200,000 years for the population on Earth to reach one billion, however a mere 200 years more to reach seven billion, (YEAR 2011)
Coral reef extinction by 2048 due to sea temperatures rising, over fishing and siltation.
SUPERSEDING THE JET ENGINE, ANTIGRAVITY AIR TRAVEL in 2059
Quantum physicists postulated the existence of gravitons, mass-less elementary particles that transmit gravitational force. The future of air travel changes to antigravity with zero carbon emissions.
(2025) Gas boilers around the world are gradually replaced with electricity, and worldwide they massively ramp up renewable energy, on a scale not yet seen, this is until Nuclear Fusion Energy replaces wind turbines in 2059, however several attempts leading up to 2025 Nuclear Fusion was achieved, however on experimental levels with some being successful and some not.
Britain was asked to put about 130,000 extra wind turbines mostly off shore. This is an area half the size of Great Britain.
Dietary changes are encouraged to take place, with people cutting back on meat, fish and dairy and relying on Mycoprotein.
Salt-Water Fish Extinction by 2048
Some of the species most threatened by over fishing currently include Atlantic Halibut, Monkfish, all sharks, and Blue Fin Tuna. Other animals not usually associated with the seafood industry are also affected, with inadvertent by-catches claiming loggerhead turtles, sharks, dolphins and whales.
Removing the fish we eat resulted in the deterioration or loss of marine ecosystems around the globe; the oceans became full of algae and jellyfish. The oceanic food web collapsed, many birds and sea mammals that eat fish also became extinct and many humans that rely on fish starved.
2020 Earth's population is still growing with numerous environmental and social factors such as pollution, malnutrition, overcrowded living conditions, and lacking health care which makes poor communities vulnerable to infectious diseases. Diseases such as tuberculosis, malaria, HIV, and dysentery spread faster in overpopulated areas.
Earth's environment getting worse, not better, Increasing population, mass migration to cities, increasing energy and soaring CO2 emissions are damaging the planet's resources.
Any solution to rectify the situation would come at a great cost with huge sacrifices required.
Most alarming; 2020 climate-warming, carbon emissions increased 40% in the past 20 years, but two-thirds of that rise occurred in the past decade.
Water security is a growing concern in many parts of the world as population and agriculture drives demand, placing enormous stress on freshwater ecosystems and fishing zones.
A decline in freshwater species in tropical areas, which have shown a drop of 70% since 1970.
70% of the Earth's surface is covered by the ocean. The people of Earth sometimes forget how essential the ocean is for the water you drink, the air you breathe, for human activity and for life. Year after year the people of Planet Earth have been pushing the boundaries of the ocean’s sustainability.
The list of the ocean’s troubles is long, but one item demands immediate attention: harmful fisheries subsidies. Nearly 90% of the world’s marine fish stocks are now fully exploited, over-exploited or depleted. There is no doubt that fisheries subsidies play a big role. Without them, it would slow the over-exploitation of fish stocks, deal with the overcapacity of fishing fleets, and tackle the scourge of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.
