Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

‘Chunyun’ Madness: World’s Largest Human Migration

Posted by feww on February 5, 2015

3.74 Billion trips in 40 days!

China’s Spring Festival, “Chunyun,” began on February 4 and will last until March 16, a 40-day travel frenzy period surrounding the Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on February 19 this year.

The world’s most populous country is expected to make billions of trips during the 40-day Chunyun madness, 3.4 percent higher than last year.

In 2014, 3.62 Billion passenger trips were made during the spring madness.

Calculated at an estimated average carbon footprint of 100kg of CO2 per passenger trip, the Chunyun journeys will have produced a total of about 374 million metric tons of CO2.

China’s per capita CO2 emissions was 7.2 metric tons in 2013, surpassing the European Union in pollution levels [per capita 6.8 tons in Europe, 16.4 tons in the U.S. and 1.9 tons in India,] according to a study conducted by the Tyndall Center and the University of Exeter’s College of Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

The researchers projected global emissions would rise by 2.5 percent in 2014 to a record total of 40 billion tons.
