In the blink of an eye

1.5 seconds is the time it must have taken for this web page to load. 1.5 seconds is probably equivalent to three blinks of your eye, hardly enough to cause any lasting change to our world. Or so we would think.

In our world today, 1.5 seconds is also how long it takes before another football pitch sized area of tropical rain forest is destroyed – an act that cannot be reversed. Oh and just so you know – a standard football pitch has an area of 7140 square meters – roughly the equivalent of 70 modern city apartments.
