  1. I find it very difficult to believe their findings as They can't update the statistics so fast. I believe the statistical findings are based on truth only partially.They wouldn't be able to track all the things done in the first place.

  3. I think the post about 33,998 species extinct this year is fake. It is barely half the year, there can't be so many animals or plants extinct. Even then, it would be on the news if this happens as it is too extreme.

  5. The amount of oil, gas and coal left in the world are the only figures decreasing. I think if we continue using energy s quickly, energy will run out very soon, so we should start conserving energy.

  6. I am not sure how they can update statistics so fast.For example , cigarettes smoked today is increasing by 100,000 every 10 seconds and World spending on illegal drugs this year (US$) is also like that.And now it is the billions!

  7. This gives us insights on the world condition and we can make partially accurate assumptions

  8. i think this is just an estimate according to statistics so they take a statistics and estimate the incline...then they guess the numbers9or calculate them....but i think people should look at this and go "wow" because this is the truth and we have to face this or else nothing will happen!!

  9. I do not think this is true because it is so unbelievable . We cannot find the total amount of births each second and we dun know when a child is born in like people in poverty and did not give birth in the hospital

  10. I do not think it is very accurate as they are not able to notice every person's move. I also think that it is not very possible that they update the information so fast.

  11. I find it hard to believe the statistical findings because they can't upload the findings in such a short times. It is nearly impossible to post so fast within last than one second.

  12. All factors are increasing except some of them like numbers of suicides this year

  13. One person dies every second = a family starts grieving every second. I pity these people. But I think that the fact that one person dies every second is false. Some times the death rate may increase or decrease. However, the website showed that it was at a constant rate.

  14. I find it too hard to calculate the statistic so fast and I am still curious how they update the statistic so fast.I only believe some as some could be false

  15. The statistical findings are not really accurate as they wouldn't be able to track ALL the things done in the first place.

  16. The amount of information that the website has access to is overwhelming and amazing, but I am not really sure if the information is accurately correct, as certain things like cigarettes smoked today cannot be found out so fast, according to my opinion.

    The amounts of oil and gas and coal is going run out pretty soon according to the statistics

  18. There are more people that are overweight than undernourished ones. Billions of dollars are being spent on unnecessary things like cigarettes . What has the world become ?!

  19. I highly doubt that there are that many suicides this year. It is merely 4 months into the year and there are hardly reports on the newspaper and news about suicides or the problem that it is increasing.

  20. All the data comes from around the world. When someone dies or something, the information is keyed in and the data is linked to this worldometers. However, the numbers are not fixed because it is readily increasing. We also cannot determine what the numbers will be.

  21. I think the statistics are good for reference but we must remember that they are not entirely true. I believe that this website/company came out with these statistics by the statistics collected from the past years and trying to figure out its trend.

  22. I think it is very unbelievable that they can receive the data so fast. The amount of cigarettes smoked is increasing so fast. How did they track every single one cigarettes used? I am sure they would not send bunch of people around the whole world tracking every single person.

  23. I think that the statistics are not entirely accurate but are done based on rough calculations. The statistics must have come about from the data collected from the previous years.
