I have a lot of activist friends (and by “a lot” I mean 3), and they often send me interesting e-mails that you’ve probably already seen. Having said that, I thought I’d post this for those who hadn’t:

If we could shrink the earth’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all the existing human ratios remaining the same, there would be:

57 Asians
21 Europeans
14 from the Western Hemisphere, both north and south
8 Africans

52 would be female
48 would be male

70 would be non-white
30 would be white

70 would be non-Christian
30 would be Christian

89 would be heterosexual
11 would be homosexual

6 people would possess 59% of the entire world’s wealth and all 6 would be from the United States.

80 would live in substandard housing
70 would be unable to read
50 would suffer from malnutrition
1 would be near death
1 would be near birth
1 would be college educated
1 would own a computer

I hope I’d be the one with the computer.
