Are we Acting Towards the State of Sustainability?

Something quick I just wanted to share. After some quick math I created a more relatable, thought provoking, view of our current state of sustainability. In an article by Steve Connor (found here, he first talks about how there are only ““3 trillion trees on the planet today . . . [which] represents just 45 per cent of the total number of trees that had existed before the rise of humans.” The earth is 4.5 billion years old and the rise of humans was around 200,000 years ago. Into a smaller scale, if the earth was 24 years old, humans have destroyed almost half of its total trees in 4 seconds. *Insert “Mind Blown” GIF here*. I think I did the math correctly if someone wants to check it for me.
