Previously, this website presented a page titled "Ebola Watch 2014" and a related page titled "Murder Watch 2015". This "Earth Watch" page completes the trilogy of watches.

The "Ebola Watch 2014" and the "Murder Watch 2015" pages of this website explored some of the gloomier aspects to life on Earth. This "Earth Watch" page represents a mixture of both. It contains some of the more positive, optimistic, pleasant, and uplifting aspects to life on Earth, and it also contains some of the more negative, pessimistic, unpleasant, and degrading aspects to life on Earth. It is my belief that humans will abandon the negative (hence, abandoning Hell on Earth) and will choose to embrace the positive (hence, embracing Heaven on Earth for the living to enjoy each day).

I think that it is alright to have video cameras in public spaces. Humans, however, must remain careful and vigilant to avoid invading the privacy of citizens once citizens have departed public spaces. There comes a point where citizens have a right to privacy and a right to take refuge from the ever-present video camera. Much like some drone hobbyists are behaving irresponsibly by flying their drone aircrafts in close proximity to, say, passenger airplanes, it is not too hard to imagine that some video camera enthusiasts, too, would go overboard and start behaving irresponsibly. The video camera enthusiasts would go overboard by, say, pointing their video cameras at private residences and recording households during their moments of privacy (especially if there is money to be made from such private recordings). Some of these invasion-of-privacy video camera recordings might be performed secretly. Others recordings might be performed openly. As a prerequisite to the recording of private moments, citizens should be informed beforehand. Citizens should give their consent beforehand to be recorded in their private spaces.

Besides, many humans already reveal a great deal about themselves and their private affairs on various social media websites for the entire world to discover. These humans probably do not need to have video camera snoops prying on them for additional private nuggets of information simply to sensationalize this information on the World Wide Web. And, already, the private spaces of celebrities habitually are invaded and violated by, say, paparazzi photographers. Given the propagation of video cameras and smartphone cameras, are paparazzi-type breaches of privacy likely to become routine occurrences for humans of the future? Time will tell.
