That all changed in the 1970s, when former leader Deng Xiaoping's rallying cry was, "To get rich, is glorious." Today, some financial institutions say China produces billionaires faster than any other country in the world.

Peru looks for reforms after a region is decimated by mining. In February, Peruvian troops and police were sent in to the Madre de Dios region of the Amazon Rainforest to disrupt widespread environmental devastation brought on by illegal gold mining. Since then, satellite imagery shows a 90 percent decline in new deforestation related to gold extraction, though environmentalists say the halt to the unpermitted mining won't last long without further reforms.

Peru is the seventh-largest gold producer in the world, and illegal miners have flocked to an area along Peru's border with Brazil, where they have clear-cut vast sections of trees and infused the ground with mercury.

The "many worlds" theory in quantum mechanics describes the idea that with every decision we make new universes spring into existence containing new versions of ourselves. While that may sound preposterous, there are some theoretical physicists who believe that "many worlds" is actually an exact description of reality.
