Where do you fit into the 7 billion people on Earth?

Where do you fit into the 7 billion people on Earth? thumbnail

Have you ever found yourself wondering how many people there are on Earth? Or perhaps you are curious as to what your birth date may signify in the grand scheme of things. Or are you a teacher in search of a new learning tool to share with your students?

Well, thankfully there is a great interactive site that is sure to become a favorite among curious minds, students and teachers alike.

Worldpopulationhistory.org is an educational site that allows visitors to explore Earth’s population through social, political, historical and environmental perspectives. The site follows the 2,000-year-long journey of human civilization and it details the potential paths leading toward the middle of the 21st century.

On the homepage, visitors can view a world map featuring various dots. Once you click on a dot, you can learn about the different population groups in that particular geographic area. You can then choose different years and see how the population in that area has changed over the years.

World Population project

The World Population project began as a simple animated video of dots on a map, which represented the various population changes over time. The video was first produced by Population Connection over 40 years ago and it quickly became a popular teaching resource. New editions of the video have been released since the project’s first conception and the most recent version can be viewed here.

Worldpopulationhistory.org is an excellent learning tool for high school students studying world history, geography and environmental science. The site is a wonderful tool for teachers as it also features six downloadable science and social studies lesson plans. The lesson plans cover current national standards and they provide content for several different Advanced Placement courses.

Students can explore the site and then put their knowledge to the test with the world population quiz and they can also find their population number based on their birthday. The site also features several “share” buttons, allowing site visitors to share their findings on Facebook and other social media platforms.

    “I used the KISS method”

    You mean the “Kid Is So Stupid” method? anyone can post titles and graphs stupid it takes smarts to interpret and explain them. You try to look smart by posting but you rarely explain and interpret. You are a fake just like your PHD.

    Clearly from MOB who has just had his ass handed to him. Identity theft and sock puppeteering happens with failure.

    “What’s the point of investing when all of the easy oil is gone, Cloggmeister, sir?”

    That’s easy, son. Because society desperately needs energy and renewables are not yet able to take over. Society will pay a broad range of prices, perhaps up to €200,- dependent on supply.

    Currently prices are dropping again, making a mockery of any notion of immanent depletion.Fracking is a real game changer. And so are renewables.

    More demand destruction pointing to a spawning of a possible 2019 recession.

    “US Tourism Bust: Summer Hotel Occupancy Saw Second-Largest Drop Since Recession”

    “For the first time since Q3 2016, growth in quarterly demand for hotel rooms in the US has dropped; in fact, posting the second largest decline since the 2008 financial crisis, alarm bells are going off across their leisure and hospitality industry. To be sure, some of the decline in Q3 2018 occupancy can be explained by unfavorable comps to Q3 2017 when hurricanes struck markets in Florida and Texas, according to data from real estate investment firm CBRE.”

    “The organization noticed a strong dollar had been one of the significant factors in deterring foreigners from visiting. Another issue presented, in the report, is the global slowdown and political uncertainties in Asia, Europe, and Latin America spurred by the trade war. “We’re seeing something of a perfect storm of factors that could suppress international demand for travel to the U.S.,” said David Huether, U.S. Travel senior vice president for research. “The U.S. dollar has been on another very robust strengthening trend since April of this year, while the global economy has been cooling off considerably overall. That, coupled with political uncertainty in Europe and rising trade tensions, is a bad-news recipe for inbound travel.”

    Billy,
    I’ve been neutering you’re dumbass for seven years now, yet you still manage to voice you’re opinions. Are you stupid? A moron? Or just brain dead?
