First, watch video from National Public Radio that illustrates the rate and demographics of world population growth since 1000 C.E. Then take a look at this graph from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory that shows the energy sources and various sectors the U.S. distribution of power is divided among. In your opinion, how will continued population growth at the rate you observed in the video affect energy production and consumption around the world? What do you think will happen to prices of energy resources (coal, natural gas, solar, wind) as a result of increased population and energy consumption?
