All the people in the world
If we could shrink the Earth's population to 100 people, with all existing
human ratios remaining the same, it would look like this:
There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere
(North and South) and 8 Africans.
51 would be female; 49 would be male
70 would be non-white; 30 white
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian
50 percent of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only six
people and all six would be citizens of the Unites States
80 would live in sub-standard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
Only 1 would have a college education
No one would own a computer
And the Hall of Famers:
"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in
our air and water that are doing it."
Former U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle
"We've got to pause and ask ourselves: How much clean air do we need?"
