Scientists in the United States have published their latest findings on the state of the world's landscape and the impact of human development on it; what they have found is frightening.

The study found that 95 percent of the Earth's land surface has had some human modification, while 84 percent is experiencing multiple human impacts.

Only 18 percent of the world's countries retain most of their natural lands. Meanwhile, 57 percent of land on earth can be classified as critically endangered.


Christina Kennedy, a senior scientist at the Nature Conservancy, talks to Al Jazeera about the alarming damages to our planet.

Media keeps pointing on the 3rd world countries instead of blaming the 1st world, drastic accussations, ha. France keep destroying not only the land but also the people in Polynesia for their Nuclear testing. Other countries keeps buying from other countries most of what the 1st world needs, such as agricultural, marine etc, thus resulting to over fishing etc etc, then at the end they blane them when in fact they are the abusers. In reality, THERE IS NO FAUR TRADE.

So because of climate change third world countries can’t develop, that seems pretty unfair.

An abandoned skyscraper in Caracas has become a shelter for many people with nowhere else to go. In less than 20 years, its residents created a fully-functioning ‘state inside the state’, with its own infrastructure, taxes and even an elected president. Despite the difficult living conditions, those moving out into proper apartments are nevertheless nostalgic about their experience of living in the 45-storey skyscraper.
