6 Times More People Currently Live In Caves In China Alone Than Lived In Caves All Over the World During the Stone Age

 

 

The Los Angeles Times reported in 2012:

More than 30 million Chinese people live in caves ….

In contrast, the global human popular during the Stone Age was 5 million people.

So there are 6 times more people living in caves in China today than lived in caves worldwide during the Stone Age.

This doesn’t mean that China is backward (and there are some really cool cave dwellings in France, Turkey and elsewhere) …

It just means that there are a lot more people alive today than there were 10,000 years ago. And that China has a huge population … almost 279 times as large as the global population during the Stone Age.
