Will the global population surpass 10 billion by the end of the century?

 All predictions have pointed to yes - until presently. Regularly growing estimations from the UN have commonly been the status quo.

A recent analysis from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation implies that the world population may begin shrinking well before 2100.

The World Population in 2100, by Country

In 2015, the United Nations prognosticated that the world population is firmly growing over the years:
2030: 8.5 billion
2050: 9.7 billion
2100: 10.9 billion

In contradiction, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation draws a contrasting panorama. It predicts the world population to peak at 9.7 billion in 2064. Following this path, there could be 8.8 billion people in 2100.

The main arguments behind this analysis: higher life expectancies, higher educational attainment, contraceptive availability, and lower fertility rates.

The top 10 countries today (2017)
1. China - 1.4B
2. India - 1.38B
3. The United States - 325M
4. Indonesia - 258M
5. Pakistan - 214M
6. Brazil - 212M
7. Nigeria - 206M
8. Bangladesh - 157M
9. Russia - 146M
10. Japan - 128M

By 2100, India had become the most populous country in the world (1.09B). Nigeria leads Sub-Saharan Africa as the only region that will continue to see population growth in 2100. China's total population will contrast by almost half by 2100.

The top 10 countries by 2100
1. India - 1.09B

4. U.S. - 336M
5. Pakistan - 248M
6. DR Congo - 246M

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
