Untouched World

Take only pictures, leave only footprints

Is there a real place on the world that is actually unaffected by the human activity? Is there still a “middle of nowhere”?

National Geographic Magazine published in September 2005 this map showing the world and the human direct interference on it. Red is heavy, Yellow is medium, Green is low.

The good news is that there are still places where humans do not have a direct influence
, the bad news is that the effects of pollution, ozone depletion, and greenhouse gases are global.
