World oil production and consumption

World oil production and consumption

World oil production significantly outpaced consumption in 2014, rising by 2.1 million b/d; all of the growth was in non-OPEC countries, which recorded a record increase.

US output grew by 1.6 million b/d, its largest increase on record. OPEC production was essentially flat, with declines among African OPEC producers offset by rising

Middle East output. Global consumption increased by 840,000 b/d, with emerging economies accounting for all of the growth; China saw a below-average increase but

still accounted for the largest increment to consumption.

Area of biotech crops by country in 2014

Area of biotech crops by country in 2014

Biotech crops were grown commercially in all six continents of the world. Of the 28 countries planting biotech crops in 2014, 19 countries planted 50,000 hectares or more to biotech crops.

Global biotech crops

Global biotech crops

In 2014, the global area of biotech crops continued to increase for the 19th year at a sustained growth rate of 3 to 4% or 6.3 million hectares, reaching 181.5 million hectares.

Whales

Whales

The Sperm Whale has a large geographic range. It can be seen in nearly all marine regions, from the equator to high latitudes, but is generally found in continental slope or deeper water. The distribution extends to many enclosed or partially-enclosed seas, such as the Mediterranean Sea, Sea of Okhotsk, Gulf of California, and Gulf of Mexico.

Mercury

Mercury

Sun-scorched Mercury is only slightly larger than Earth's moon. Like the moon,

Mercury has very little atmosphere to stop impacts and it is covered with craters.

Neptune

Neptune

Dark, cold and whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is the last of the hydrogen

and helium gas giants in our solar system.

Jupiter

Jupiter

The most massive planet in our solar system - with dozens of moons and an enormous

magnetic field - Jupiter forms a kind of miniature solar system.

Saturn

Saturn

Adorned with thousands of beautiful ringlets, Saturn is unique among the planets.

All four gas giant planets have rings - made of chunks of ice and rock - but none are as

spectacular or as complicated as Saturn's.

Uranus

Uranus

Uranus is the only giant planet whose equator is nearly at right angles to its orbit.

A collision with an Earth-sized object may explain the unique tilt.

Mars

Mars

Mars is a cold desert world. It is half the diameter of Earth and has the same

amount of dry land.

Pluto

Pluto

Discovered in 1930, Pluto was long considered our solar system's ninth planet. But after the discovery of similar intriguing worlds deeper in the distant Kuiper Belt, icy Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet. This new class of worlds may offer some of the best evidence about the origins of our solar system.

Moon

Moon

Our moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet's wobble on its axis, leading to a relatively stable climate, and creating a tidal rhythm that has guided humans for thousands of years.
