7 Billion Peoples

7 Billion Peoples

7 billion is a big number by the end of 2011
You will be 1 of 7 billion people living on Earth
It would take 200 years just to count to 7 billion out loud
7 billion steps would take you around the globe 133 times

In 1800 the world's population was 1 billion
130 years later
1930 - 2 billion
1960 - 3 billion
1974 - 4 billion
1987 - 5 billion
1999 - 6 billion
2011 - 7 billion
in 2045 it could be 9 billion

About every second 5 people are born 2 people die
In the time you've watched this video
Our population has increased by 162-170 peoples
And nearly everywhere we're living longer
In 2010 the average person lived is 69 years
In 1960 the average person lived is 53 years

In 2008 for the first time ever
more of us lived in cities than rural areas

Megacity = population > 10 million
Mexico City, Tokyo, New York City in 1975 there were 3 megacities
Right now there are 21 megacities

By 2050
70% of us will be living in urban areas
But...
we don't take up as much space as you'd think

Standing shoulder to shoulder all 7 billion of us
would fill the city of Los Angeles

So...
It's not space we need
IT'S BALANCE





5% of us consume 23% of the world's energy
13% of us don't have clean drinking water
38 % of us lack adequate sanitation

7 BILLION PEOPLE
speaking more than 7.000 languages
living in 194 countries
