First, we figure out the speed of light in Miles/Second; which is 186,000 Miles/Second. Next, we multiply this by 60 seconds, to get the distance traveled in a minute, and so on. - 186,000 Miles/Second x 60 Seconds = 11,160,000 Miles/Minute 11,160,000 Miles/Minute x 60 Minutes = 669,600,000 Miles/Hour 669,600,000 Miles/Hour x 24 Hours = 16,070,400,000 Miles/Day 16,070,400,000 Miles/Day x 7 Days = 112,492,800,000 Miles/Week 112,492,800,000 Miles/Week x 4 Weeks = 449,971,200,000 Miles/Month 449,971,200,000 Miles/Month x 12 Months = 5.399.6544e+12 Miles/Year ([I]5,399,654,400,000 Trillion Miles[/I]) 5.399.6544e+12 Miles/Year x 10 Years = 5.3996544e+13 Miles/Decade ([I]53,996,540,000,000 Trillion Miles[/I]) 5.3996544e+13 Miles/Decade x 10 Decades = 5.3996544e+14 Miles/Century ([I]539,965,400,000,000 Trillion Miles[/I]) 5.3996544e+14 Miles/Century x 10 Centuries = 5.3996544e+15 Miles/Millennium ([I]5,399,654,000,000,000 Quadrillion Miles[/I])
First, we figure out how many feet are in a mile, which is 5,280 (~5,000) feet. Next, we multiply the speed of light in Miles/Second, 186,000, by 5,000 feet. Finally, we multiply that result by 60 seconds, to get the distance traveled in a minute, and so on. [B] - [/B]186,000 Miles/Second x 5,000 Feet = 930,000,000 Feet/Second 930,000,000 Feet/Second x 60 Seconds = 55,800,000,000 Feet/Minute 55,800,000,000 Feet/Minute x 60 Minutes = 3.348e+12 Feet/Hour ([I]3,348,000,000,000 Trillion Feet[/I]) 3.348e+12 Feet/Hour x 24 Hours = 8.0352e+13 Feet/Day ([I]80,352,000,000,000 Trillion Feet[/I]) 8.0352e+13 Feet/Day x 7 Days = 5.62464e+14 Feet/Week ([I]562,464,000,000,000 Trillion Feet[/I]) 5.62464e+14 Feet/Week x 4 Weeks = 2.249856e+15 Feet/Month ([I]2,249856,000,000,000 Quadrillion Feet[/I]) 2.249856e+15 Feet/Month x 12 Months = 2.6998272e+16 Feet/Year ([I]26,998,272,000,000,000 Quadrillion Feet[/I]) 2.6998272e+16 Feet/Year x 10 Years = 2.6998272e+17 Feet/Decade ([I]269,982,720,000,000,000 Quadrillion Feet[/I]) 2.6998272e+17 Feet/Decade x 10 Decades = 2.6998272e+18 Feet/Century ([I]2,699,827,200,000,000,000 Quintillion Feet[/I]) 2.6998272e+18 Feet/Century x 10 Centuries = 2.6998272e+19 Feet/Millennium ([I]26,998,272,000,000,000,000 Quintillion Feet[/I]

What you see above is a photo from part of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
This is well, a large patch of garbage in the Oceans that humans created.
The size of the patch is unknown, as large items readily visible from a boat deck are uncommon. Most debris consists of small plastic particles suspended at or just below the surface, making it impossible to detect by aircraft or satellite. Instead, the size of the patch is determined by sampling. Estimates of size range from 700,000 square kilometres (270,000 sq mi) (about the size of Texas) to more than 15,000,000 square kilometres (5,800,000 sq mi) (0.41% to 8.1% of the size of the Pacific Ocean)
This patch of garbage and other volatile and harmful substances has a large negative effect on a number of things, ranging from our wildlife, to the environment, humans and more. A lot of animals in the wild die from various reasons, such as eating the plastics and other harmful substances found in the garbage patch.
This patch is slowly harming the Earth. All the garbage, sludge, oils and many other things rotting away and decaying produce harmful particles and chemicals into the air; just another form of pollution, which brings me to the next section!
This area of the thread really needs no elaborate explaining, so I will simply provide a few facts about it.
•Toxic pollution affects more than 200 million people worldwide. In some of the world’s worst polluted places, babies are born with birth defects, children have lost 30 to 40 IQ points, and life expectancy may be as low as 45 years because of cancers and other diseases.
•Pollutants that are released into the air, as opposed to land and water pollutants, (The Great Pacific Garbage Patch) are the most harmful.
•In 1952, the Great Smog of London killed 8000 people.
•Travelers at the Grand Canyon are unable to see the other side due to air pollution.
I have only discussed a few of the various ways humans harm themselves as well as the Earth. With everything discussed, do you believe we are slowly killing our mother Earth; or do you think she can handle the harm from us humans, or maybe you believe we will eventually find a way to undo and get rid of all the damage we have done?
Let your mind run free!
