11 Amazing Environmental Facts
Amazing Environmental Facts
1.The number of water on Earth is constant, and continually reused as time passes: some of the water you drink will have passed through a dinosaur.
2. 40 percent of all bottled water bought from the world is bottled plain tap water.
3. Paper can be recycled only six times. After that, the fibers are too weak to support together:
As you recycle paper, the newspaper is mixed with normal water, then ground up in a machine like a giant blender. This becomes the paper back to pulp, but this new pulp isn’t exactly the same as what we should started with. All the blending and grinding has shortened and weakened the fibers. When ever you make recycled newspaper, it’s weaker and better to tear, because the interlocking fibers aren’t as long or strong. Imagine ignoring up our spaghetti mass and recooking it-the noodles will be a great deal shorter this time, and won’t lock together as well.
4. 27,000 trees are felled each day for toilet paper:
Bathroom paper wipes out twenty-seven, 000 trees a day. Worldwide, the equivalent of almost 270, 000 forest is either flushed or dumped in landfills every day and roughly 12 % of that total is owing to toilet newspaper, in line with the latest issue of World Watch magazine.
5. Beavers have transparent eyelids so they can see underwater with their eyes shut.
6. The 100,000 trillion ants in the world weigh about the same as all human beings.
7. Octopuses have three hearts.
Octopuses have three hearts; a systemic heart that flows blood round the body and two branchial paper hearts that pump it through each one of the two gills. Octopus blood contains the copper-rich protein haemocyanin to transfer oxygen.
8. As soon as tiger shark embryos develop teeth they attack and eat each other in the womb.
9. There are more than 1,200 species of bat in the world and not one of them is blind.
The particular smaller species of bats use echolocation as their main method of orienting themselves. Bigger bats can see better than humans. Sight is a true blessing and a curse, however, because sight can override echolocation signals. For illustration, a bat may take flight into a window because it sees light outside the house, even if echolocation says it the surface is solid.
10. Dolphins shed the top layer of their skin every two hours.
11. Humans and elephants are the only animals with chins.
Unexpected and almost ludicrous, it may sound, but it is apparently true – we are the singular two species to have chins. Although there is often debate whether or not the same term of “chin” can be used for elephants, the feature is possibly the same in both species. In human evolution, the chin is a cladistic apomorphy, partially defining anatomically modern humans as distinct from archaic forms – apes have a simian space for example (a bony thickening on the front side of the jaw to reinforce the jaw).
