first off: we only have about 5% percent of the world's population--25% would be about 1.5 billion people.

However, we do have 25% of the world's prisoners.

5% of the population, 25% of its prisoners. Pretty far out eh?

While the US accounts for just 5 percent of the global population, 25 percent of the world?s prisoners are in American prisons and jails. Included among these prisoners are more than 3,600 death row inmates.

I think it's more like 5% of the world population and 25% of global resources consumed.
What I know for sure though, is that the US is responsible for 25% of the world's CO2 pollution. But then, global warming is a hoax, isn't it?
