Population map of the future

One of the key factors in sustainability is population growth, both because of the impact on the environment and competition for resources (food, water, energy, etc.). Here is a map (a pdf file) from Population Action International that gives a picture of how many people will be on the planet 20 years from now, and where they'll be.

37 billion people by the year 2300!? Get me off this planet! I'll be 354 years old then. And that's way to old to put up with all those people.

Very interesting. It looks like the Midwest US will still be a less dense area to live. It ought to be a great place to have as a retirement base!

Thanks for the glimpse of the future.
