World Population Video

Below is a cool video that i saw in a geography course years ago and now discovered it on YouTube.  I like this video because it shows the growth of population from the year 1 A.D. to projected growth in 2030. There are many interesting things about this video but one that caught my eye was the actual population decrease in Europe during the Black Plague.  It also illustrates how fast our population is growing, especially in the last 100 years and how population is a main contributor to many environmental issues.  So this video discusses population geography, world geography, human geography, mentions environmental issues and finally is a neat illustration of how maps can be interactive and not just a piece of paper with one image.
