Our Planet is a very busy place,
and with each passing day, it gets even busier.
More data was just created in the past two years,
than in all of Human History proceeding it.
And that trend is going to continue upwards.
More things happen in just one day around the world today
than happened in year several generations ago.
So let’s take a brief glance at what will happen
over the next 24 hours after you finish watching this video
First,let’s talk about what we as a species will be creating.
Over 200 thousand cars will be manufactured across the world
and out of those roughly 450 of them will be toyota corollas.
In order to fuel this enormous demand for cars all across the world
humanity will consume over 79 Million barrels of oil.
But that’s not the end of mankinds, nearly limitless desire for more resources,
all over the world in the next 24 hours,
somewhere between 9 and 10 Million trees will be cut down,
and most will eventually be harvested.
For various reasons
the planet is currently undergoing a sixth mass extinction event.
150至200种珍稀的植物 昆虫 鸟类和哺乳动物
Between 150 and 200 unique species of plants,
insects,birds and mammals will go extinct over the next 24 hours.
The last time that life on earth was going extinct to this quickly was 66 million years ago,
during the annihilation of the dinosaurs
and one of the species that still exist for now with the shortest lifespans,
the Mayfly will be born at the start of this video
and will already have died from natural causes,
by the start of the next day.
Meanwhile in your own body over 8.6 Billion chemical reactions will take place within yourselves,
and you’ll probably take an average of 23000 breaths. You’ll also probably walk an average of 5000 steps,
unless you live in Hong Kong
where people walk the most closer to 7000 steps a day,
or you live in Indonesia
where people walk at least around 3500 steps a day
and speaking of people,
18 Million of us will be celebrating our birthdays
during the next 24 hours.
Over 6500 weddings will also take place just in the United States alone
and somewhere out there over 200 Million people will have sex with each other.
Since that’s a pretty common thing,
353,000 new babies will also be born during the same amount of time,
more than the entire population of Iceland, every day.
163,000 of these babies or nearly half
will be born in to extreme poverty.
Across the world, nearly 1.3 billion people live
nearly 1.3 billion people live in what is considered to be extreme poverty,
And will survive on less than a Dollar and 25 cents
over the next 24 hours.
The inequality of wealth on our planet
during our current age is truly something staggering.
The average person on the planet will earn around 50 Dollars during the next day,
while Jeff Bezos, the world’s wealthiest man
will earn over 215 Million Dollars during the same time.
That’s even more money than Apple as a company will earn during the next day,
probably around a 127 Million Dollars.
In the United States alone
over 57,000 firearms are going to be sold.
29,000 people are going to get arrested
and around 47 people are going to be murdered.
But that’s not as many as in Brazil,
where around 168 people are probably going to get murdered.
Worldwide and for every reason
around 151,000 people are going to die and leave us behind,
which is significantly less than the number of people being born.
McDonalds will probably sell around 6.5 Million hamburgers
and around 72 Million litres worth of alcohol are going to get consumed by us,
or about 13.5 grams per person over the age of 15 on the planet.
At the same time,humanity will generate over 3.6 Million tonnes worth of garbage
And tech companies will sell over 4 Million new smartphones.
Largely because of sheer number of smartphones out there in the world
over 2 Million rides are going to get ordered through Uber,
over 21 Million songs are going to get downloaded from iTunes,
over 67 Million photos will get posted to Instagram,
about 1.3 Billion swipes are going to be made on Tinder
and over 23 Billion text messages are going to get sent.
The sheer amount of data that humanity generates and sends out on a daily basis is really something incredible.
In the past 2 years alone for example,
mankind has created more data than we ever did than in all of human history combined before that.
Just on Youtube alone,
over 576,000 hours worth of content is going to get uploaded in the next day
and 5 Billion videos are going to get viewed,
less than on Snapchat
where over 6 Billion videos are going to get viewed.
Over 10,000 new articles are going to get read on Wikipedia,
more articles than we have surviving from the entire classical age of human
history which spans centuries.
People love writing because over 650 million tweets
are also going to be made during the next day too.
But numbers like this keep getting bigger and bigger,
because 1.5 Billion people are also going to check in
on their Facebook pages, or about 1/5 people on the planets.
Over 3.5 Billion searches are going to be made on Google alone,
and 5 Billion searches across all search engines.
Finally as far as data is concerned,
a ridiculous 224 Billion Emails are going to be sent
during the next 24 hours,
and 66 % or 2/3 of all of that will be spam mail.
Collectively over the next 24 hours humanity will create about
2.5 Quintillion bytes worth of data, more than double
the amount of data created during the entire year of 1999.
If that’s not science fiction sounding
then I don’t know what else is
The planet and our society on it is resembling the future
that we imagined in movies and fiction all the time,
and if you feel yourself falling behind in the skills and knowledge to create all of this data,
there is no better place to go next than Skillshare.
One of the most common questions that I get asked all the time，
is how I got started making these videos, and
the first step was learning to require skills to go in to it
比如研究 写作 录音以及剪辑技能
like researching, writing, audio recording, and editing.
For all of these skills though, there is a course offered on Skillshare,
an online learning community with more than 20,000 Classes
on whatever it is you wanna learn.
The sheer variety of classes you can take is incredible.
You can learn skills to help you make videos,
build a good looking website or cook a delicious meal
and so much more.
There is even amazing classes, talking about my Youtube friends, Mike Boyd
and the team behind Kurzgesagt.
