Global physical and economical scarcity

Global water scarcity is a complex challenge encompassing both physical and economic dimensions. On the physical side, many regions around the world face water scarcity due to factors such as population growth, climate change, and inefficient water use practices. This scarcity is manifested in dwindling water sources, such as rivers and aquifers, leading to a strain on the availability of freshwater for various uses.

Economic water scarcity, on the other hand, arises when a region lacks the necessary infrastructure or financial resources to access, treat, and distribute available water sources effectively. This economic dimension often exacerbates the impact of physical scarcity, limiting communities' ability to meet their water needs for agriculture, industry, and daily life.

Global water scarcity

The consequences of water scarcity are profound, affecting ecosystems, agriculture, and human health. 

783 million people, or 11% of the global population, remain without access to an improved source of drinking water. 80% of the world's population lives in areas where the fresh water supply is not secure. Furthermore it is currently estimated that by 2025 over two-third of the worlds population could be living in water stressed conditions.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
