  3. I find that the constant increase in numbers does not look real but it is quite amazing that the number of babies born increases constantly.

  4. The numbers do not seem to be true and might only be an estimation. But I was shocked by all the deaths and amount of carbon-dioxide released into the air.

    -The many deaths today is too unreal, as it increases so rapidly.

    Questions
    -How do they know the exact amount at this period.

  7. the number of trees are decreasing in a matter of minutes, which is really bad. The number of Emails sent is just amazing! They are sent every single seconds, and the number of emails are increasing by millions/second!

  8. How are these digits being recorded, when they are changing very fast? For example, categories like Society & Media and Government and Economics. These numbers seem unreal, as it isn't possible for a human mind to calculate numbers that quick.

  9. I think the worldometer is an awesome tool in statistics as the site automatically update itself, without you having to reload the page some time later and finding that numbers had changed. It also shows these information for free, but I think that's because companies can't use these information as the numbers change too fast. Oh and I do not know how they manage to get all that information.

  12. there was so many and that it was increasing so fast, although the speed of which it increases is just an estimation that is based on previous and current statistics

    I did not think that things would increase so fast. The main wow factor was how fast people were sending emails

  13. I think that the constant change of the statistics is extremely unbelievable. However, this does not look too real, and I find it impossible that so many people could die so fast!

  14. The number of every increasing detail is so vague, however we due to consider them as truths instead of myths, and we are not the only ones living on Earth today. One query is that the way they record it is how.

  16. I found it rather surprising that there is a constant increase in the numbers which looks a bit fake.The amount of cigarette smoked today does not seem real as it is increasing really fast.


    Question

    Is it really accurate?

  17. Oh Yeahh, and my question is How they manage to get so much information all the time..?

  18. I am curious of how accurate and how they record these stats in real time
    and fascinated by the number of phones are sold every second.

  19. I liked the environment section as that was an eye opener. I did not know that the earth traveled so fast

  20. At this rate, the amount of oil and gas will run out sooner than expected.

    And every second, more and more people are spending their money on illegal drugs and smoking cigarettes. That must be one of the reasons why the number of deaths increase every second.

  21. I think most of the deaths are from the libyan war

  22. My question : Is the data presented accurate and how do they keep track of the data ?

    MY comment : It is no surprise that the amount of internet users, email messages, amount of phones sold today are increasing at a very high rate. This just shows how important and crucial technology is to us these days.

  23. I don't believe that these stats are accurate at all.I mean,how can you keep track of the world population so accurately?

  24. I find the "health" section the most interesting. They had components such as "suicides this year" and "death by HIV/AIDS"/"People infected by HIV/AIDS this year". People are beginning to take advantage of their own lives and health, you would think that they would appreciate it but based on the number of people who have suicided this proves otherwise. The main cause of AIDS is also through the irresponsibility of someone, and the number of people who are infected is already more than 30M! Further more "World spending on illegal drugs" and "Cigarettes smoked this year" are shockingly high.
    It is a huge shock to realise that the world is coming to an extremely healthy state where people can't be bothered with taking care of themselves.

    My question is: What is the government, the world going to do about the tragedy which is how people take care of themselves in this 21st century.

  25. Is the statistic really accurate? I find out that the source of their statistic is from only two organization based in US, what about data collected by other country. The huge increase in certain numbers seems very fake , for example, It is impossible for TV to be sold to increase every second. How do they know the rate of barrels being left? Do they even know how much oil is left in the ground?

  26. I'm glad that the birth rate is higher than the death rate. I find it sad that the number of undernourished people in the world today is so high. It is also sad that the number of people who have no access to safe drinking water is above a million.

    The number of Google searches is so HIGH! This just proves that Google is a good source of information. :D

  27. I am shocked as I do not know how do they get the exact amount of coal & gas left on earth. I also do not know how they can find out how much gas and coal is there on earth. I am also surprised that they know how many days left to the end of gas.

  28. I think that this is not accurate as the numbers are increasing rapidly and quickly and it is not very possible that they could gather so much information quickly.
