One of my classes ("Your Future World") studies the physical, cultural, political, historical, and economic geography of the 10 countries the United Nations has forecast to be the world's most populous in 2050. The list itself comes as a surprise to most students. As we close out 2016 and prepare to watch a clock count down to a new year, it is instructive to spend a few minutes watching a world population clock, ticking up the births and deaths around the world.
The Worldometers clock includes a real-time look at population growth in the world and in the 20 countries that were the most populous at the beginning of 2016: www.worldometers.info/world-population/ The Poodwaddle clock shows real-time population growth in the world and by continent: www.poodwaddle.com/worldclock/pop/
