    This was just an assignment for school, but I didn't expect to like and be interested that much to Mr. Rosling's entire presentation. This is very educational and interesting. Well done!

    This is a great example of what "story telling" can do to transform dry numbers and statistics into something that keeps the attention of your audience high and inspires them.

      I wanted to see ecological population graphs. Like Biomass totals of wild mammals, fisheries, insects, elephants in the Sarangeti. The status of food webs. For me that's the part that humans whether they know it or not, are tied to our natural world. Without a healthy natural world, you will not have a healthy human world. Just as example, in my life alone, co2 ppm has only ever gone up at an increasing rate, from about 340ppm co2 to 420ppm co2 in my life alone.
      Cuz if these rivers dry out and destroy our breadbasket regions, we are collectively fucked to the tune of several billion people. And there aint 1800s era hunting grounds if we wanna go live in the woods either.

      @4theplanet Narcissism is the baseline for all animals. It's growing out of it, that is the human journey. We all take different paths, learn certain things at certain times. What's important is that you make an effort to keep progressing down that path. We can't know everything. Anyway, he's dead now. You can choose to remember his accomplishments or his failures, or both.

      @François Badoux by "concrete proposal" I mean both the what and the how. While I don't expect for him to solve worldwide problems in a worldwide scale, what I mean is that we shouldn't say "when they get solar power", e.g., and could surely say more about "here's how they can get solar power".
      Like I said, very specific solutions are not the topic, but I feel like these documentaries/shows make people get the idea that this can be simplified, while that doesn't get you far in helping to the entirety of the dilemma
      I hope I'm being clear, and it was my bad to talk in facts when what I stated was closer to an opinion

    Watching Hans Rosling talks I learned that *time* is the missing element in most data analysis and statistical reports. The media and political campaign are even worse when supporting their agenda with statistics, since they only use a snapshot of data, stripping away the element of time.
    Hans was a great teacher whom I never met.
    RIP Maestro Rosling.

Knowing that there are people interested in these matters makes me proud of mankind. This is the kind of videos everybody should pay attention to.

      @Kln Kat "(...) manipulating your fear in order to take political and financial control. You will see it, maybe this year, maybe next. (...)" Prophetic words, Kin Kat...

      @Kln Kat Not gonna lie, dawg. It's pretty cringe that you think your little rant actually has any substance and that anybody is listening to you, let alone remembering "hearing this as the years go by and you lose your naive innocence."

      @J This is not meant to be targeting you specifically, but you (meaning students) will know you are grown up when you realize that authority figures are not all equally respected, equally scientifically rigorous or equally honest. In fact, most are not.
      You will learn that the UN and the EU are bodies of elite globalists who are desperately trying to socially reengineer the world into one world order - their order. In other words, they give the order and you bend the knee.
      Who came up with the global warming scam? You guessed it. The UN and the marxist professors running elite Universities are the so called experts manipulating your fear in order to take political and financial control.
      You will see it, maybe this year, maybe next. They will start to lose the propaganda stranglehold and the majority of the world's climatologists will be heard without retribution. They are talking now, so is the earth's physical record of climate. They are proving that the earth's climateis not changing from excess carbon dioxide, but the earth is thankfully greening because of it.
      Read the New Green Deal if AOC and you'll see it has nothing to do with conservation abd EVERYTHING to do with Socialism and destroyjng Americas economy, not to mention veganism. We will all be equally destitute and subservient and won't care about global temperature anymore. Small mercy.
      I know you will laugh now, the teachers have their hooks in your brain. Maybe some will remember hearing this as the years go by and you lose your naive innocence.

      @bluskies1000 That was very inspiring and I'm thankful that you shared that. I used to be depressed, on welfare with 2 children to raise on my own, and a low paying job. I got a second job, and luckily I had my mom to help with babysitting, and with the two jobs I got a car, and then I asked to be laid off to go back to school, and that sent me to a week of getting to know me! and through that found out I was an entrepreneur and decided to start a business, and on my way to an evening seminar to enter business school, I stepped in doggy doo. After cleaning my stinky boot off as good as I could, I entered a dark room with a video showing the winner of last years 'entrepreneur of the year' award and she ran a dog daycare. It was truly inspiring. I went from wanting to be a fashion coach to being a dog daycare handler. 16 years later and doing over 100K in sales, I can't even remember the last time I was depressed. Too busy to be depressed. I am sad sometimes, realising I worked so much I didn't leave time for friends, so that sucked, but the feeling of accomplishment and value outshone it all. Thanks again for sharing! Mimi

      @Gene Wickersham It wasn't explained that the cost of running a motor bike is much higher than for a regular bike: fuel mainly but also repairs if/when it breaks down. A regular bike costs nothing to run and any repairs would be a lot simpler and cheaper. I suppose the point I'm making is that the next step up is a bigger one than people might realise.

      He is wrong. The only environmental facet he touches in this presentation is climate change caused by human made emissions. Emissions are only one of many symptoms of our level of consumption, and therefore, by omitting the fact that all parts of nature are degrading rapidly, his talk is only for people to feel good. Also, the though that the population in a democracy would vote to reduce their standard of living to a sustainable level (extreme loss of materialistic wealth for everyone) is just ignorant. Every drastic, effective environmental policy will, in a democracy, be implemented to late. Or maybe not, its all up to us now.

One thing I would like to see: I've heard it said that cell phone technology is being used by many poor people to help them move beyond poverty. I would be interested to know if Professor Rosling has any opinions about the use of cell phones in the developing world. Best wishes to all....

    As an American baby boomer, I remember the horror of seeing news stories
    of starving children in Bangladesh. We were taught ‘over population’ was a problem constantly back then. This presentation has had a profound effect on me. IT WORKED! The powers that be did exactly what they claimed needed to be done - they lowered the birth rate significantly. Birth control advances were a huge part of it also. I enjoyed seeing Dr. Rosling’s presentation very much. And I am happy to say, have done my part - I have three children & 5 grandchildren. You’re welcome!😜

      Yes - the best. I'd love to know the secret of how they did the graphics, so that the whole audience, the cameras, and also Prof Rosling ( often behind the charts ) could all see them at the same time. Brilliantly executed with sound effects backing the graphics. And if he was reading autocue - I can't detect the presence of one. Word perfect rehearsed. Were the graphics added later just for the video recording ? If so - how did he know exactly where to stand with his left-to-right walks behind them ? Just superb. My thanks and respect to all involved.

    This man was a prime example of living your dream. Why? Because. One must work to survive. And if you can find or create a job that gives you this much joy, well your truly truly truly blessed. People- especially you young ones here for a school assignment- PLEASE please please PLEASE put all of your effort into getting into a line if work that you truly love, and I mean ALL of your effort- do this while your young, because then the rest of your life can be spent in enjoyment, because your work which takes a great percentage of each days time will be spent in an enjoyable atmosphere which will allow your happiness so much more when your not at work. PLEASE DO NOT DO DRUGS- I was a successful WAAAAY smarter than average student and employee who thought I'd never ever touch hard drugs but here I am at 39 still hooked on heroin, because I didn't feel I could handle things when my dad died and million things on top of it. That was 20 years ago. Please, if your using you MUST stop now, after 20 years and 24 times in rehab and dozens of outpatient programs I still can't seem to quit. Don't let this become you please it's like living in hell on earth.
    Much love.

    Having been a statistician myself (before I decided to sell my soul to the corporate world) I truly appreciate what Hans does. However, I don’t believe the food part is sustainable when looking at the larger picture. We already see deforestation in many parts of the world which is massively harmful to the environment, wildlife, etc and ultimately all of us.

    • jason simms
      jason simms 10 months ago

      @Ole-Egil Hvitmyren why is deforestation bad in the first place? Europe and the us deforested their countries and whiped out all the large herbivores and they are two of the most successfull regions in the world.

    • Ole-Egil Hvitmyren
      Ole-Egil Hvitmyren 10 months ago

      @jason simms given that about that time the British Isles and Iceland, among others, were completely deforested for building materials and firewood, that's not as much of an aha moment as you seem to think it is. Many countries have started responsible forestry, many have not. I don't think we should stop there. We can do better.

      @Georgios Doumas If you think that the solution is enforced population limits and veganism, you missed more or less the entire point of the presentation.
      Ironically I think lawns are a bigger problem than meat in western lifestyle. Looking at the big picture, rain forests are not deforested to make more pork, they're deforested to make margarine and cooking oil from palm oil. There's now a shortage of sun flower oil in Europe, and restaurants are forced to choose between no longer deep frying potatoes or going back to palm oil for their deep fryers. Which is absolutely silly, as those potatoes could have been eaten boiled/mashed instead, giving much more nutrients for the same energy and not wasted all that oil. So air frying, baking, boiling, mashing etc is something you can do to your food instead of deep frying to save huge amounts of rain forest.

      star cruiser you clearly aren't really up to date to the current state of agriculture, and you also lack of perspective. Just because we have surplus today, it doesn't mean it will continue tomorrow. It is akin to saying that you will always have the same production level of gold and oil, and extrapolate that production to a hundred years and say that everything will be fine and that we will have an overabundance of supplies if we keep going as we are. That is not how it works.
      First of all resources are finite, secondly it is precisely this mentality that is destroying a biome that is designed to be unlimited, but we are exploiting it so efficiently that we are destroying natural ecosystems.
      This is the problem that we inherited from the "green revolution", it saved us back then because of how efficient it became, but now it became a problem we became so efficient that we are in the verge of disrupting complete biological communities to the point of driving them into extinction. The adoption of industrial models into the exploitation of natural resources is leaving a very toxic and those externalities are destroying the very resources that generates our food.
      Just intensifying whatever we are currently doing to compensate the fall of productivity without understanding the underlying problem would effectivrlt drive ourselves into extinction if we end up destroying the food chain.

    I am very sorry to hear of the passing of that Hans Rosling. I liked him very much.
    He showed how statistics and reason could be used to understand the world rationally and compassionately. He also understood the need to communicate these ideas in the best way possible.
    His achievement, in my opinion, was that he combined knowledge (in the form of practical experience and field work) with statistics and brilliant presentation in a way that enabled him to explain his perspective in way that was truthful, insightful and moving.
    Farewell Hans, you were a class act.

    This is for English, my review of this presentation:
    The statement that, “the World is much better than many of you think”, could not have been better said in the sense of modern day living. The talk of population and its changes have been ongoing for so long that we can either see the solution or be completely blind to it. I feel as if Professor Rosling has brought up a significant point considering what we have said over time, and that is that both poor and rich have misconceptions. No one is ever completely wrong because that is what an opinion is but what decides what ones opinions are is viewpoint and at times this may be twisted based on situation. The rich may blame the poor for different reasons and look down and laugh, the poor may say that the rich can change and see them as tyrants. Everyone is allowed an opinion but we are also allowed a choice in which we can change our situation based on our actions and them alone because no one is going to do it for us, hand it to us on a silver platter. The view of different life's from regions of the planet over time show these differences and what data we collect suggest that most people either are misinformed or not knowing at all about information and images of those far away. This just shows how people can blame and say things about a topic they know little of and claim they know what's right but Professor Rosling brings up an important point that not everyone is doing as bad as we picture them too, and not just because of the new and the only images we see but what we imagine others to live like as well. He, like many others, are trying to inform the public about the truth and explain that the world is doing better, and will continue to, than it was even as close to a day ago. I agree with his explanation and conclusion about population because as we see it, it is perceived as overpopulation, an over spread of resources, overuse of energy, and a disease to us and the world. How he sees it however is hope because we can sustain ourselves with the technology and resources we have amassed and what's left is how much we are willing to share and use. The information about life span rises as people get richer but it doesn’t change for those is poverty until their wealth rises, think about what it could have been if the rich stepped in and help. That is the idea Professor Rosling is giving to the people as best he can because having this mind set would make you reconsider, now not just thinking about overpopulation and running out of space and resources, but now how the population will peak with wealth rising. Not that was the point of explaining population but the other purpose of this presentation is to inform, share, influence and change how we see the world. People have their opinions and people like Hans Rosling would like to see more positive outlook from people so we can trying to better understand the viewpoint of others on the same world and begin to fix something that didn’t need fixing unless we understood it to a fuller extent.
