- Over 600 000 women die each year of pregnancy related diseases, and about 90% of their children will not survive their first birthday.
- Almost all population development will happen in less developed countries.
Here is a list of the world's most highly populated places. In 2050 their populations are predicted to grow rapidly.
-United States
- Arizona
-United Kingdom
- In the US there is a problem with teens. They like having children a lot and it is causing overpopulation in the US. The average teen to have children is 25.
- The population has grown faster since the Agricultral Revolution, probably because there had been more food to go around.
-For the first time in history, almost half the people of the world will live in an urban area.
-Americans only represent 5% of the world population but consume 25% of it's resources.
- In China there are 24 million motor vehicles. If everyone in China had one then that would mean 1.33 billion vehicles in China! That would make so much pollution!
