A Real Time Research Documentary and Call for Action
This page maintains a real-time update of human impact on the biosphere, focused on global warming
and catastrophic climate change,
species extinction, deforestation, habitat loss, population and other issues, so that the reader can keep pace with the emerging situation.
This is a situation we are all very well aware of and it is critical to the future of Earth and the viablility of humanity as a species
that every single one of us makes it our prime and central aim in life to personally ensure that the world remains naturally resilient,
to provide future generations with a reasonable prospect of continued survival. Action is absolutely essential and urgent!!

Climate Change, Global Warming, and Ocean Rise
Latest high accuracy predictions show no sign of population growth peak by 2100. Left: World population trends in the latest 2014 study show high confidence estimates of world population growing from the current 7 billion to 11 billion by 2100 with no sign of reduction (10% and 5% variations in darkening colours). Right: Growth by continent with Africa failing to curb population growth (Gerland P et al. 2014 World population stabilization unlikely this century Science 346 234 doi:10.1126/science.1257469). This shows that the unrestrained population growth is largely confined to Africa, with other continents stabilizing and some countries expereincing a population decline due to rapidly falling fertility rates.
