  3. 3. Our Earth right now<br />Every year we throw away 24 million tons of leaves and grass. Leaves alone account for 75% of our solid waste in the fall.<br />By turning down your central heating thermostat one degree, fuel consumption is cut by as much as 10%.<br />63,000 square miles of Rainforests are being destroyed each year.<br />Every year approximately four billion tons of carbon accumulates in the air each year, about 30% of this comes directly from the continued burning of the rainforests.<br />40% of America's rivers are too polluted for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life.<br />In any given year, about 25% of beaches in the US are under advisories or are closed at least one time because of water pollution.<br />Asian rivers are the most polluted in the world. They have three times as many bacteria from human waste as the global average and 20 times more lead than rivers in industrialized countries.<br /> Our Earth <br />.org<br />Page 3 of 10<br />Contact : @psu.edu <br />Date : 10/10/2011 <br />
