VIDEO: TED Talk by Hans Rosling on global population growth

TED Talks The world's population will grow to 9 billion over the next 50 years -- and only by raising the living standards of the poorest can we check population growth.

 

TED talks are great resources, and this one about global population growth, is a great link with Hans Roslings trademark data visualizations that simplifiy complex data and 'tell the story,' but this time using far more common visual aids.

The question that he seemed not to address in this presentation is how many people the earth can sustain? Is it not true that the wealthiest countries consume a disportionate amount of the world resources contributing to the anguish of the impoverished? The question perhaps should be centered on not preventing the population from exceeding 7-9 billion but equalizing and properly allocating the resources of the planet.

Beyond 7 Billion

Beyond 7 Billion | IB&A Level Geography | Scoop.it
After remaining stable for most of human history, the world's population has exploded over the last two centuries. The boom is not over: The biggest generation in history is just entering its childbearing years.

 

The Los Angeles Times has produced an in-depth interactive feature centered around the impact of an increasing global population.  With videos, population clocks, narrated graphics, maps, photos and articles, this is treasure trove of resources that cuts across many disciplines.
