“If the 20th century was an expansive era seemingly without boundaries—a time of jet planes, space travel, and the Internet—the early years of the 21st have showed us the limits of our small world.”
Michael Moyer and Carina Storrs, Co-Authors, in Scientific American
Scientific American’s interactive timeline How Much is Left? charts the depletion of Earth’s natural resources. A data-driven portrait of climate change driven by over-consumption, How Much is Left? makes a powerful argument for environmental conservation. Website visitors can track supplies of natural resources—water, oil, coal—ten, fifty, and even hundreds of years into the future. The project reveals that if consumption continues at current rates, many of the resources we rely on today will have vanished.
