It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion—and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth’s resources, even as we approach 11 billion?

The video above, from the Museum of Natural History, shows the entirety of human history in just 6 minutes. It shows humans spreading around the world in a few hundred thousand years, the rise and fall of civilizations, plagues, wars – right through to our present day population of 7 billion.

It’s pretty enlightening to see how far humanity has come in a relatively short period of time – when compared to the life of our planet.

If the video was to play forward for another 6 minutes, what story do you think it would tell us?
