This cool, interactive web page from the BBC puts into perspective our impacts on the planet. For example, since I was born forest cover has decreased from 4.2 billion hectares to 247.5 million hectares and the Antarctic ozone hole has increased by 2 million square kilometres. A great idea of showing how the planet has changed in our lifetimes and what is to come if we do not take action.
Explore BBC Earth's unique interactive, personalised just to you. Find out how, since the date of your birth, your life has progressed; including how many times your heart has beaten, and how far you have travelled through space. Investigate how the world around you has changed since you've been alive; from the amount the sea has risen, and the tectonic plates have moved, to the number of earthquakes and volcanoes that have erupted. Grasp the impact we've had on the planet in your lifetime; from how much fuel and food we've used to the species we've discovered and endangered.
