How much rainforest is being lost per second?

Unbelievably, over 69,000 acres of rainforest are burned every day in the world. That is over 150 acres lost every minute of every day. Experts estimate that at the current rate of destruction, the last remaining rainforests could be consumed in less than 40 years. Experts also estimate that we are losing 130 species of plants, animals and insects every single day as they become extinct from the loss of rainforest land and habitats..' The site in the Related Links claims 1.5 acres (0.6 hectares) per second. United Nations Environment Program claims "An area of a rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed each second." Rainforests once covered 14% of the earth's land surface; now they cover a 6% and we estimate the rainforests could be completely destroyed in less than 40 years, because every minute 150 acres is being destroyed, so every day that adds up to 216,000 acres of rainforest is destroyed , so every week 1,512,000 acres destroyed, so every month 2,286,144,000,000, so every year 54,867,456,000,000.
