Population clock for every country

Population clock for every country | Gaea Matrix | Scoop.it
Real time statistics for current population of any country. Real time data on population, births, deaths, net migration and population growth.

 

This site shows various demographic statistics for every country including some based on projections in demographic trends in the given country.  If the current trends hold (which they won't, but that is still an interesting measure), the entire Japanese population will disappear in 1,000 years according to this Global Post article.

Scott D.Warner, R.L.S.'s insight:

Various historical essays on population have captured the attention of many who may have otherwise tended to be indifferent to what had been obvious to the authors all along.

Population density dependent malfunctions in societies include crime, disease, and even war.
Kyle Kampe's curator insight, May 27, 10:17 PM

In AP Human Geo., this article relates to the population growth theme because it utilizes all of the indicators we learned in this class, including CBR, CDR, net migration rates, and population growth rates.

Bill Moyers: Why Are We Giving the Silent Treatment to the Crisis Which Could Make All Others Irrelevant? | Gaea Matrix | Scoop.it
Global warming is a planetary emergency on that should be on every politician’s mind, so why are any of us still silent? And what can we do about it?
Scott D.Warner, R.L.S.'s insight:

It seems that it is less a political emergency than a planetary and anthropological emergency.

The inner world and the outer world, when taken as interconnected, may tend to recreate the word of God as it was intended. To be one with the universe is to be one with God. Likewise, to be one with yourself, is to be one with the universe. Then, to be one with yourself, is to be one with God.
