“Uniting in voluntary human extinction”

Below you will find resources for the charts, graphics, and information on display at the information table for the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement.

Notes and sources for the footprint chart (2023 compilation from 2019 data):
Data is from the National footprint network except:
Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is mostly from the CIA World Factbook, with additional data from the World Bank.
“Acres/lifetime saved” column gives a more complete measurement of how much is preserved, on average, by not creating a new human in that nation.
In the US, 19.2 acres of potential wildlife habitat x 79.25 life expectancy = 1,513.9 Lifetime Acre Years saved.
In Bangladesh, a 1.8 acre footprint x 73 life expectancy = 127.5 Lifetime Acre Years saved.
