The World’s population has reached  7 Billion today, October 31st, 2011.  We’ve added 1 billion humans since 1999.

The world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Great Famine and Bubonic Plague in 1350, when it stood at around 370 million.  So, we’ve add about 6.63 billion humans in 661 years.

Fastest growth rates (over 1.8%/year) occured in the 1950s, 60s ,& 70s.  Peak growth rate was 2.2% in 1963.  By 2050 we are looking at a world population of around 7.5 and 10.5 billion.

There are 79 Million humans born…everyday.

India is expected to pass China as the world’s most populous country in the next 20 years.

How many humans can our Earth support?  10 Billion?  12 Billion?  Certainly not more than 15 billion.

7 Billion People is a lot of people
