The Pace of African Population Growth

Nearly all of the world's population growth between now and 2100, will occur in Africa, but population growth here in the U.S. -- mostly driven by immigration -- will shape resource dependency and land use patterns as well.

The 125 million people the U.S. will add in the next 85 years is greater than the entire population of the U.S. west of Mississippi River today.

How many forests will fall to farm, and how many farms will fall to freeway when that happens?
