A Video Of Human Population Growth From 100,000 BC To 2,100 AD In Six Minutes

November 8, 2016


This is a video created by the American Museum Of Natural History depicting earth's population growth since humans began migrating out of Africa some 100,000 years ago. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly that there are entirely too many people now.

It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion--and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth's resources, even as we approach 11 billion?

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "You want to nuke the entire planet?" Of course I do, that's one of my things, but that's not what I was thinking now. "What was it then?" Okay fine it was nuking the planet but I don't like how you guessed it so easy.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to carey, who agrees if the population keeps increasing we're going to need to start building additions to earth.

    That is one of the most shameful thing for the humanity in the history. World population keeps irregularly increasing and that will cause the extinct the humanity. We may be extinct easily because of the poverty, massacre, wars, famine etc..

    That article explains us exactly:

    TL;DW...Who's got 6 minutes. If you can't do it in a 8 second gif then it's to long.

    did they use the same graphics as pandemic?

    Kind of makes you feel like a virus.

    I think a billion people would be more than enough. Let's have slow negative population growth until we get there (from 7 billion + today)

    Time for Captain Trips?

    I did... But my wife didn't. That's why she's my ex. No, that's not true. She's my ex because she's insufferable and abusive.
