If Our Planet had only 100 People on it....

(Archives July 31st 1997 , newspaper clipping I found. )

If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of 100 people,

with all the existing ratios, remaining the same,

it would look like this.:

There would be 57 Asians

21 Europeans

14 from the Western Hemisphere

8 Africans

51 would be female

49 male

70 would be non white

70 would be non Christian

Half the wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and

All 6 would be citizens of the USA

80 would live in substandard housing

70 would be unable to read

50 would suffer malnutrition

Only one would have a college education and

no one would own a computer.

Interesting. :)

Very intriguing! I wonder how they come up with this stuff, though!

Ohhh, very thought provoking indeed! I wonder how it would compare to stats from today? Great stuff!

I wonder if the stats can be expanded to the number of people that are actually on the planet

That is interesting.

Looking at those stats with smaller numbers but the same ratio seems to bring it to a level that easier to comprehend. Interesting.

I would imagine if they put in the real numbers it wouldn't look as shocking as when you put it in small numbers

White people are doing birth control to save the planet while the rest of the world is exploding babies many of which are dying because the planet cannot support every one, especially if they will reproduce as well.Poverty will continue to exist, suffering,and wars and God will be blamed because man takes no responsibility for his behavior.
Saying everything is ok, doesn't make it so.Being politically correct doesn't make it correct either. But then that is just my opinion lol
