How much land is untouched?
Accordingly, what percentage of the Earth's surface is untouched by humans?
Why it matters: The new study finds that just 5% of the Earth's land surface is currently unaffected by humans, far lower than a previous estimate of 19%. 95% of the Earth's land surface has some indication of human modification, while 84% has multiple human impacts, the study found.
Also, what percentage of Earth's surface is land? 29%
Hereof, how much land is unused in the world?
So we can either state that most humans now inhabit only 10% 0f world's land, but we have the rest 80% well connected with roads, highways, farmlands. etc. So depending on time taken to travel, we can say that humans now inhabit 90% of world's land leaving only 10% for wilderness.
