The dramatic effect of humans on the planet earth cannot be matched to any other species’ effect. Our urban landscapes, filled with skyscrapers and transport links, are the heaviest man-made structures.
The Anthropocene Review published a research on the dramatic effect of humans that states the physical weight of the modern-day human existence sums up to 3.11 trillion tons.
The biggest portion which is 11.10 trillion is taken up by urban areas. The estimations similarly considered reservoirs, sea floor, and eroded soil. All these represent the massive influence of humans on this small blue planet.
