The latest WWF report reveals the tragic state of wildlife

Human activity is having an increasing impact on reducing the biodiversity of our planet, and from the latest WWF Living Planet report we can find out what the damage looks like in the last 50 years. This comprehensive analysis of the state of the natural environment, created in cooperation with over 125 experts from around the world, the most important element of which is the Living Planet Index, reflecting global trends in the population of wild animals, shows that the lack of sustainable human activity is pushing the planet's natural systems to the edge of their possibilities. For example, since the seventies of the last century, the average number of surveyed populations of vertebrates, i.e. mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians, has decreased by 68%, which is a catastrophic result!

It is the richest people in the world who are responsible for the galloping global warming

As reported by The Guardian, only 1 percent of the richest people on our planet (approx. 63 million people) are responsible for the emission of twice as much greenhouse gases into the atmosphere as the poorer half of humanity, i.e. 3.8 billion people. This is indicated by the results of studies prepared on the basis of data collected in the years 1990-2015. At present, it is even worse in this matter.

For 18 months the old TV set broke the internet connection of the whole town

As Michael Jones, an engineer at Openreach, informs us, as we are talking about this operator, as part of the final test, it was decided to send a special team from the headquarters to carry out a detailed "investigation".

Here is the first such accurate picture of the extrasolar planet Beta Pictoris c

Here is a picture of the exoplanet Beta Pictoris c, which orbits a star twice the size of the Sun called Beta Pictoris. The objects are in the constellation Painter, 63 light-years away, or some 630 trillion kilometers. Despite this, it can be seen with the naked eye from the surface of our planet. Interestingly, the host star of this exoplanet is very young, being only 12 million years old. It is worth adding here that the Sun has been around 4.6 billion years.

And now scientists from Italy have published their research. In both cases, we get confirmation that protective masks are the most effective weapon in the fight against CoVID-19.
