FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, May 3, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Population Research Institute (PRI) has just released the third video in its YouTube cartoon series, designed to refute the idea of overpopulation with science — and stick figures. Contrary to claims advanced by population control advocates, the latest video reveals data indicating that world hunger is not caused by a lack of food, but by wars, lack of transportation, and economic factors.
To date the series has garnered well over 200,000 views on YouTube, and has made PRI one of the more popular non-profit channels on the video channel.
The latest video is available at PRI’s web site.
At just under two minutes long, the video uses data from the UN Food and Agricultural Organization and the World Food Programme to explain world hunger and reveal how overpopulation is not causing it. All this, while at the same time remaining simple, humorous and - most importantly - geek-friendly.
“We’re excited to offer another great installment of our highly popular YouTube series,” says Steven Mosher, PRI’s president. “We can help educate young and old alike through this online video medium in the blessings of people, and do an end run around the “lamestream” media’s fixation on the outdated theory of overpopulation.”
“We also have a web site devoted solely to these videos: www.overpopulationisamyth.com,” says Colin Mason, Director of Media Production at PRI. “The site retains the aesthetic of the videos, while getting into a little more detail of the science itself.”
“We’re very excited about the site,” explains Joel Bockrath, PRI’s Vice President for Operations. “All of our content is downloadable. We think this could be a valuable resource for students and teachers especially, who may feel alone defending a sometimes unpopular position.”
