Beyond these grim statistics, the critical question is: Or will we keep using more and more resources until human civilisation collapses?
Bright yellow regions are the hottest and emit the most energy out to space. Dark blue and bright white regions, which represent clouds, are much colder and emit the least energy.

In the remote sensing image above, the continents all aglow like faint apparitions, as well as the scientific color key, were obvious give-aways that this was something other than a painting.
And to my eye at least, the interplay of colors express a dynamism that looks almost painterly. The pattern also looks abstract, at least at first glance.
The ultimate source is incoming energy from the Sun. In this mage from the NOAA satellite, the white and green shades represent thick cloud cover reflecting incoming solar energy back to space.
The darker blue regions have no cloud cover. This is infrared energy. So another, perhaps fanciful, way to think about the image is to consider it a planetary portrait painted with heat energy. Bright yellow areas, like those over Africa and Australia, are warmest and emitting the most energy out into space.
The darker blue and bright white areas are emitting the least energy, and so they are coldest. These are mostly clouds. One other thing is worth mentioning: Some of that energy hangs around for awhile as a result of the natural greenhouse effect. And as this happens, these molecules begin radiating more heat.
Some makes it down to the surface, causing warming there. And lucky for us, because otherwise Earth would be like a big snowball.This song is available on Music with Mar.'s Start Each Day with a Song.
