People, Population…

The number of people on Earth has more than doubled in the last 50 years. 

National Geographic put tons of data into a perspective. Astonishing. Take a look:

According to BBC News (July, 2012),

  • In 1900, there were 1.6 billion of us.
  • By 2000 the global population had shot up to 6.1 billion.
  • Last year, we passed the seven billion mark.
  • The best estimates have us reaching the nine billion mark before 2050.
Thank you for stopped by!  Have a wonderful week 🙂

  1. So many problems .. so little solutions … it’s something we all need to face and do something about rather than shy away from it and leave a huge mess for our grandkids and beyond. Great post for the challenge …. National Geographic has shown us again what we need to know.
