7 Billion: Are you typical? Year-long Nat Geo special reports


7 Billion: Are you typical?

7 Billion: Are you typical? Year-long Nat Geo s…, posted with vodpod

I could see a bell-ringer in there somewhere.  Who do you think ought to see this thing?  What classes in public schools should see it, for what purpose?

I hope the year-long series lives up to the video.  I hope there are a lot more videos to go along with it.  As a piece of persuasive rhetoric, it does make a decent case for subscribing to National Geographic for a year.  How’s that for rhetorical criticism?

    Population limitation by increasing income has been the best long-term solution over the past two centuries. We haven’t been able to spread it far enough nor fast enough.

    But I don’t think the NG focus is on overpopulation so much as the characteristics of the population we have. Did you read the NG article?

    My college biology instructor (at a conservative Christian college no less) said that population would always be limited one way or another. Specifically humans could elect to limit their own population on their own terms, or nature would do the job for us.
