Countdown To 7 Billion: A Tale Of Two Worlds

Submitted by on August 2, 2011 – 5:20 pm No Comment

The United Nations says that sometime around Halloween the seven-billionth person will be born into this world — most likely in India, which is on track to overtake China as the most populous nation in just 16 years.

This latest milestone may not come as a surprise. But it is remarkable nonetheless. It took Earth 50,000 years to reach the one billion mark. By 1960 there were three billion souls. Since then we’ve added another billion every decade, or less.

When the baby boomers’ grandchildren reach middle age, they’ll share the planet with more than nine billion people.

My Comments:
Really sobering data on world population growth.  Not all doom and gloom though, but it shows that a lot of things have to come together in order for things not to go from bad to worse.  Well, what can you say about the Indians…damn, they must have a lot of free time on their hands…go ahead India…with your bad self.
