If the population of the world was only 100 people, what would society look like? How many people would have shelter? Clean water? Education? Watch this video and find out.
The video is a classic testimony to why when data is condensed into clear visuals, it enhances our understanding of the world around us. The video has been doing the rounds on the internet lately and here are some of the responses from people about the topic:
1. We would fight for more equality if there were only 100 people. But there isn’t. You can help the people around you, not the 7 billion.
2. One person makes 90 dollars per day? So if you make 32850 dollars per year, you are in the 1%? Damn.
3. Wow! I am actually quite privileged – I have shelter, clean water, food and adequate money. I forget how being born here (USA) and having an education can mean so much – more willingness to share is in order.
