      • Global Calorie Intake
        • Countries in North America, Europe, Oceania all consume over 2,850 calories every day. Also Brazil, and some countries in Asia also consume above 2,850 calories.
        • Most countries in Africa, Asia and South America consume less than 2,390 calories every day.
    • Water
      • Countries along the Equator have enough water. Warm, moist air rises here, which causes high levels of rainfall.
      • Countries to the north of the Equator  have physical water scarcity. This is when there isn’t enough rainfall. Cooler, dry air falls here.
      • Countries to the south of the Equator experience some water scarcity. This is less severe than in the north.
      • Countries  that are furthest away from the Equator have enough rainfall to provide plenty of fresh water.
    • Energy
      • Saudi Arabia, Russia and the USA produce the most oil. Around 66% of global oil supplies are found in the Middle East.
      • The USA, Russia and China have the largest coal reserves. Around 70 countries have coal reserves and there is enough coal left to last for another 112 years.
      • Russia, Iran and Qatar have the largest natural gas reserves. Globally, there is enough natural gas to last for around 50 years.
      • Australia, Kazakhstan and Russia have the largest uranium reserves. Uranium is a non-renewable resource used to generate nuclear power.
