  • 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 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 200.000 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 79.000.000 Million barrels of oil.

  • But that's not the end of man kinds, 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 under going a sixth mass extinction event.

  • Between 150 and 200 unique species of plants, insect 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 66.000.000 years ago, during the annihilation of the dinosaurs

  • and one of the species that still exist for now with the shortest lifespan, 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 8.600.000.000 Billion chemical reactions will take place within yourselves,

  • and you'll probably take an average of 23.000 breaths.

  • You'll also probably walk an average of 5.000 steps, unless you live in Hong Kong

  • where people walk the most to 7.000 steps a day, or you live in Indonesia where people walk the least.

  • Around 3.500 steps a day, and speaking of people,

  • 18.000.000 Million of us will be celebrating our birthdays during the next 24 hours.

  • Over 6.500 weddings will also take place just in the United States alone,

  • and somewhere out there over 200.000.000 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 1.300.000.000 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 in the next day,

  • while Jeff Bezos, the world's wealthiest man will earn over 215.000.000 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 127.000.000 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 a 168 people are probably going to get murdered.

  • Worldwide and for every reason around 151.000 are going to die and leave us behind,

  • which is significantly less than the number of people being born.

  • McDonalds will probably sell around 6.500.000 Million hamburgers

  • and around 72.000.000 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 3.600.000 Million tonnes worth of garbage,

  • And 10 companies will sell over 4.000.000 Million new smartphones.

  • Largely because of the sheer number of smartphones out there in the world,

  • over 2.000.000 Million rides are going to get ordered through Uber,

  • over 21.000.000 Million songs are going to get downloaded from iTunes,

  • over 67.000.000 Million photos will get posted to Instagram,

  • about 1.300.000.000 Billion swipes are going to be made on Tinder

  • and over 23.000.000.000 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 5.000.000.000 Billion videos are going to get viewed,

  • less than on Snapchat where over 6.000.000.000 Billion videos are going to get viewed.

  • Over 10.000 new articles are going to get readen on Wikipedia,

  • more articles than we have surviving from the entire classical age of human history which spans centuries.

  • People love writing because over 650.000.000 million tweets are also going to be made during the next day too.

  • The numbers like this keep getting bigger and bigger,

  • because 1.500.000.000 Billion people are also going to check in on their Facebook pages,

  • or about 1/5 people on the planet.

  • Over 3.500.000.000 Billion searches are going to be made on Google alone,

  • and 5.000.000.000 Billion searches across all search engines.

  • Finally as far as data is concerned, a ridiculous 224.000.000.000 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

  • 25.000.000.000.000.000 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,

  • like researching, writing, audio recording, and editing.

  • an online learning community with more than 20.000 Classes on whatever it is you wanna learn.
