Why We Love Terrarum!
From Dealing with Saltwater to Currency!
Dealing with Saltwater
Having only saltwater is an issue but there is always a solution and that one solution was built in Techolony, the colony South of Ore Pacificus, and transferred to all of the colonies, even Medicus. Fresh water has become a valuable resource and we use it negotiate.
Now, if you're wondering what that the machine is, it won the Desal Prize in 2015, this competition on Earth encouraged scientists to help with water shortages all over the world, and now ours. With the help of solar power, we can can function as human beings and work together.
There are three different categories of climate change impact,
- Erratic Climate and Weather Extremes
- Altered Ecosystem and Habitat
- Risks to Human Health and Society
With these categories, we can understand how severe climate change can be severe. On Earth, one impact is the fact that now the water system on Earth has been thrown off balance. For example the cryosphere, the frozen water on Earth, is melting at faster pace than normal. Now, weather off all types are getting more extreme.
Minerals, Water, Cloth, ALL VALUABLE!
Ore Pacificus' currency is different too. Instead of paper dollars, we actually use the real minerals. Diamond is equivalent to $100, gold is equivalent is $50, silver is $20, and so on. It's always interesting. I never have the issue of unfolding money, because I can't fold it. Now if you're wondering about cents, they don't really exist. They are there to help understand which coin you should use but no coin is equivalent to a dime, penny, or quarter. The lowest currency is copper is equivalent to $1.
