New Cartoon From PRI as Population Reaches 7 Billion

by Population Research Institute | Source: Population Research Institute
We at PRI are proud to announce the fifth episode of our highly popular YouTube cartoon series—just in time for the world's population to reach 7 billion people this month. The series has, to date, garnered over 800,000 views, and we fully expect to finally reach one million with this video.

The latest video is available here, or by visiting Two minutes long, it aims to show that the world's population is not skyrocketing out of control. Rather, according to the latest UN data, our numbers are slowing to a standstill before plummeting downward again.

“Our goal is to be both accurate and entertaining,” says Colin Mason, PRI's Director of Media Production and the video's editor. “We figure if we can be funny and visually interesting, people will absorb the concepts painlessly.”

“When people see that we’re adding a billion people,” Mason continues, “they automatically assume that our population is ballooning out of control. But that's not the case at all … and most of the time, all it takes is a simple chart and people get it. The hard part is getting them interested enough to look. That's what we hope to accomplish with these videos.”

“The fight against the myth of overpopulation does not have to be a bare-knuckled brawl,” says Steven Mosher, PRI's president. “These videos are funny and easy to digest, the very opposite of Al Gore's boring pronouncements on the 'dangers' of too many people. Our viewers end up considering the science that supports our pro-people position, often for the very first time. We say to our skeptics: watch, laugh, and learn.”
