That stuff is always awesome... Hans did one on TED a few years ago as well.

My favourite is Hans Roslings presentation using IKEA boxes to visualize the future development of our population.

I prefer the stats in your previous post, 36",26",36" ;-)

Great to see the visual effect of the movement over time.

Stephan, I liked that IKEA box presentation. A lot of interesting data analysis which led to the conclusion that upping the life expectancy of the poorest countries helps reduce the population explosion. Best summed up by his line: "Child Survival is the new Green."

Bangladesh was called East Pakistan in 1948, wasn't it?
