Above is a very interesting graph which was posted by Wikipedia around 2019, I believe. They have come to the same conclusion. The graph shows, quite correctly how all-natural disasters around the world suddenly began to increase rapidly in the late 50s' (I have added the 1957 broken line to emphasise the rise in natural disasters since then.) Floods and cyclones are added to the graph above.
"Without the Sun’s energy, life as we know it could not exist on our home planet."
However, too much energy and we have an inverted scenario . . .
Authors note: (I can't find any data going back to the mid to late '50s but it is safe to assume, the decline of the species didn't just suddenly begin in 1970 and is probably tied in with the sudden burst of chaos which hit our planet in the year 1957.
Fish. When will the oceans be empty?
In 2006, the fisheries researcher Boris Worm and his colleagues published a paper in Science, on the trends in biodiversity loss in the world’s oceans. The year 2048 is expected as the year of a ‘global collapse. He says:
“Our data highlight the societal consequences of an ongoing erosion of diversity that appears to be accelerating on a global scale."
"This trend is of serious concern because it projects the global collapse of all taxa currently fished by the mid–21st century (based on the extrapolation of regression to 100% in the year 2048)."
The authors no longer stand by their original claim. The aftermath of their paper in 2006 created a lot of uproar in the fishery research community. There were many rebuttal papers challenging this position. The research community had previously been divided: one camp had a more optimistic take on the status of the world’s fisheries and prospects for the future; one had a more pessimistic take. Boris Worm fell into the latter. Some may say Boris Worm was being a tad optimistic!
Yes! Even we as a species started declining rapidly around 1957.
