Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Except Maylasia, nothing goes into anything on the Southern hemisphere.

    South America, Africa, Australia – Still look like resource-exporting colonies.

    All roads lead to China. Hail China — the New Rome.

    @NoKidding,

    The Southern Hemisphere has half the landmass of the Northern Hemisphere, and that’s counting Antarctica, about a third of the southern landmass. It also has barely 11% of the world population vs. 89% on the North.

    It’s pretty empty, down south. Really empty. Not much going on. Really not much.
