A trillion is one thousand billion - 1,000,000,000,000.00
A billion is one thousand million - 1,000,000,000.00
Just for giggles, lets say someone gave you a billion $1,000,000,000.00 dollars, and the only condition for you to start spending the money is to simply count out up to one billion first, that would seem like a easy task now wouldn't it? - But not really, you see, if you were to count out one billion $1,000,000,000.00, nonstop without sleeping, eating, moving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, it would take you over 39 years to just verbally count out a billion.
Now if you were to just verbally count out one trillion $1,000,000,000,000.00 nonstop without sleeping, or eating and moving, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, it would take over 55,000 years to just verbally count out one trillion.
Since trillion and billion are difficult numbers and volumes to imagine and comprehend, so I thought putting these huge figures into a real world perspective, an understandable volume of something important to all of us, may help us to realize what are we doing and how big a damage we are inflicting upon our one and only HOME, Planet Earth:
