About: DON'T PANIC — Hans Rosling showing the facts about population
if the poor are Burning wood to cook and keep warm in Africa then they are putting more carbon into the air than rich countries. Trees absorb heaps of carbon out of the air and burning wood,puts twice as much carbon into the air.
Saying that, I loved this video and now feel much more hopeful and happier about the future of the world.
she steps with her shoes onto a bed with a naked child in a pediatric ward...Neither vaccine nor antibiotic will fix ignorance of filth and absolutely no barometer of hygienic behavior.
Someone get this man a bike
I'd love to see this study again but with modern, 2019 statistics.
Are these graphs for wealth inequality over time adjusted for inflation? I assume they are but it wasn't explicitly stated.
Not a chance. Even with lower fertility "Population Momentum" will move our population to an absurd and horrifying 11.5 billion by 2100. This is in a world with finite needs and a human race with infinite needs that's already obliterated 60% of all other animals.
Take a woman in 1950 having 10 children. Each of those children have 3 children. Their children have two. That's 91 people in just three generations from one woman. Take Nigeria. 30 million in 1950. Estimates of 390 million by 2100 with absolutely no means to support them in climate change, except hope to send them North to Europe. An obscenity of complete suffering.
Lower fertility also requires high stability and female empowerment. That won't happen as war and drought caused by climate change increases. The opposite in fact. Now take the rise of the Far Right in wealthy countries on the migration of just a few million.
Let's say you allow billions into the wealthier regions of the world, with the weak lemonade drink excuse that it's ageing. Ignore automation. Ignore the fact that they themselves age. Ignore the rise of the Far Right. We would still see a far faster acceleration of consumption that in itself causes more climate change and thus more population movement and warfare.
Basically we're screwed!
Why doesn’t their government build a thorium molten salt reactor? Byproducts would be xenon they could sell to the united states for use at NASA interstellar space travel. They could sell the molybdenum 99 for cancer research and cancer diagnostics. The excess heat could be use for cold to oil production and water desalinization.
CO2 does not contribute to climate change in any significant way. CO2, however, is extremely important to plants. More CO2 means more, and healthier plants. Burning fossil fuel in lower tech ways contributes a number of pollutants which can be greatly reduced by more technology, which already exists.
If you need a lot of reliable energy and you don't have hydroelectric, and don't want to burn fossil fuel, nuclear is the path to the goal.
I have to agree that increasing the video playback speed is actually a good idea. If on android all you need do is tap the top right 3 dots and change to 1.25.
I see a lot of feels in a 'documentary' of a statistician.
I'm only at 16:55
The part on the knowledge about average children per woman was laughable. Nobody is schooled about those things. We only see what 'news' and NGO's tell us. I bet they can raise less money when people realise that life-expectensy is about 70 years in most of the world.
Like wise men said: you have lies, damned lies and statistics.
One can proof anything with statistics, it depends how you present them.
: But the Muslim countries STILL have crazy many kids!
Not every baby is a blessing!🤦♂️ Try telling that to a teen mom in India og Africa, whose child was conceived by rape!!
That goat can walk itself!!!! It doesn't need a bicycle!
When did China have 7 babies per woman?
Mr Rosling has forgotten to mention the fact that the 10,11 billion or more people will depend on fossil fuels for almost everything, even for the production of their bycicle, but in particular for their food production. Fossil fuels means CO2, it is an irrefutable fact, that the world can only feed 1 billion people in a sustainable ecosystem. Despite UN climate conferences with ambitious plans, CO2 levels rise unstoppable.
Ha ha Hans, such a kidder. Born in 1950, I've seen population triple and growth rates remain above 1%/year so double in another 70 years or less - unless something stops it. Count on it.
