We had a great trip Walleye Fishing on Lake Erie in early June. We were in the East end of Lake Erie hoping to get some early walleye as they migrate around the east end of the Lake from the American side. Every year the migration begins from Dunkirk, NY to the Niagara River mouth and to Pt. Abino.
Did you ever think of how humans compare in proportion to all other life on Earth?
Here is a mind blowing comparison in chart form, compliments of VOX.
As you can see, humans make up only 0.06 Gt of Carbon. However while humans represent only a small fraction of biomass on the Earth, we are reducing the rest of animal and plant life in staggering amounts. While plants still represent an overwhelming majority of the bio-matter, it is estimated that plant mass used to be approximately DOUBLE what it is today on Earth before humans started clearing forests for agriculture and human living.
