Oh, thanks for sharing! I just got inspired by this and looked around the website.
I really liked the other one on the same site that talks about what 7 billion people LOOKS like, and that it's not SPACE we need, it's resources we need to conserve. I'm going to use this video with my students when we talk about renewable and non renewable resources next month.

Yeah, I like this one too. Even if you were aware of much of the factual information in the video, it's presented in a way that's thought provoking.

Yeh I always thought that there were more females then males. Something else this video reminded me of - now a teacher told me this and I've noticed a lot of teachers will randomly drop "facts" that aren't always correct. Anyways apparently in like 3 or 4 generations there will be no more blonde hair or blue eyes because they are weaker genes then brown eyes/black hair. But I dont know if this holds true because my dad has brown eyes and my mom has green eyes and I have blue/green eyes, and my brother has green eyes. Also I'm paler than both my parents.

This one's false, and is usually based on a misunderstanding of gene expression.

I found it very interesting and I also thought females outnumbered males slightly in populations of mammals. I'm very surprised that India will overtake China in population... I understand more now why it's so important to my [Indian] boyfriend to have two children, max, because of population control.
