The Best and Worst Countries For Animal Rights

What are animal rights? Generally, this is the view that all animals should be admitted to the identical basic level of empathy as humans. The acceptance is that animals are not only ownership - they are breathing, living beings that can feel pain. Acknowledging this is one of the most basic principles of animal rights.  Some people associated with the animal rights movement, like vegans, go even further by blaming all animal by-products, including dairy and leather. They are against that even if pets are given superior treatment all of their lives and killed humanely, they shouldn't have their lives terminated by humans. These people are usually against hunting, selective breeding for goals other than the animal's well-being, medical experiments, killing animals for food or clothing, using animals for difficult manual work, zoological garden, and animals practiced in amusement. The Swiftest ranked 65 countries with available data to see which are the best and worst for animal

The largest solar power plants in the world

In recent years, solar energy has been developing exceptionally fast. In 2020, the increase rate of global renewable energy capacity jumped 45 percent. Solar power installations increased 23 percent. According to International Energy Agency's  "high renewables" scenario, by 2050, solar power would contribute approximately 11-16% of worldwide electricity consumption. In the U.S., solar production is forecasted to rise from 11 percent of total renewable energy production in 2017 to 48 percent by 2050.  What percentage of electricity is generated by solar power worldwide? Worldwide, about 2 percent of the energy was produced by solar power in 2019, but that share grows each year exponentially. This global solar energy movement is maintained by the unbelievable, expansive solar farms constructed around the earth. Amazing SolarPower.Guide infographic explores the largest solar power plants worldwide. A solar power plant is an electric production system that accumulates and c

This year's ozone hole is one of the largest on record

This year, the size of the ozone hole reached 24 million square kilometers (9.3 million square miles). It is larger than the United States and Canada combined. Below is the Animation tracking the size of this year's ozone hole, which is one of the largest on the record created by Reddit user Sdbernard . CFC-11 or trichlorofluoromethane was extensively used from the 1970s to 1980s as a refrigerant and foam insulation. The Montreal Protocol in 1987 forbade CFCs and other aerosols that chemically destroy protective ozone 10-40 kilometers (6 to 25 miles) above our planet's surface, particularly over Antarctica and Australia. Late CFC-11 was principally used for house insulation, but worldwide production was stopped by 2010. Researches have seen a significant slowdown in the depletion rate of the Ozon layer over the past 6 years. After 2012 the depletion rate slowed by nearly 50%.  The new growth of the ozone hole and CFC-11 concentrations in our planet's atmosphere may indicat
