Hans Rosling is a physician and scientist – and will change your world view in this video named:
Hans Rosling’s 200 Countries, 200 Years, 4 Minutes – The Joy of Stats – BBC Four
Hans Rosling trained in statistics and medicine and spent years on the front lines of public health in Africa. Yet his greatest impact has come from his stunning renderings of the numbers that characterize the human condition.
In 2006 he gave a talk, in which he animated statistics to tell the story of socio-economic development, which was viewed over 3.8 million times and translated into dozens of languages. His subsequent talks have moved millions of people worldwide to see themselves and our planet in new ways by showing how our actions affect our health and wealth and one another across space and time.
At 63 he is truly changing the way we see our world. I know you will enjoy the above video. And after you view it, listen to the song I wrote – “Start the World All Over Again”!
