Given the dramatic events taking place in the Middle East, particularly Egypt, I decided I should repost some research I did on world demographics and resources. Thomas Friedman says " The World Is Flat". I say, Not! It is a hodge podge world. Interpretations of where we are heading is not easy ... thus whether you are in Bemidji or Bangalore, watch my short video.
Using population and natural resource data from the University of Sheffield's World Mapper combined with music from the Renaissance, I try to raise some issues. It is "Western" viewpoint that the Age of the Renaissance was an "Age of Enlightenment". At that same time, "Eastern Thought" regarded the West as Barbarians!

I hope you find this research enlightening. My thanks to the Virtual Byrd Choir.
