Hey guys. Kwaku here.
Can you imagine? It took the humanity, the time that man has been here, about 198,196 years to reach 1 Billion people in the world. Fast forward, 123 years later to 1927, 2 billion people are in the world. Then something strange happened. It then took about 30-33 years for the size to grown by another billion people. In 1960, 3 billion people were reached in the world... In only an amount of 33 years. Then, we saw a great rise. Human population was growing rapidly, the global population reached four billion in 1974, five billion in 1987, six billion in 1999 and, seven billion in October 2011 with other estimates being in March 2012. According to some projections, the world's population is likely to reach around nine billion by 2045–2050. Asia comes 1st place for over population. Folks, this isn't a "Oh, everything will be fine." Or "We'll just build on the water." You have to understand this isn't a problem for the other guys... this is a problem for all of us. This is what fuels global warming and the more people we have using up our resources, the less we may have. Meaning, the only way people will be stopped is by natures limiting factors, Space, weather, and food. (Thanks for teaching me Mrs.Rosenburg) The only way the population will be reduced if we keep going at this will be through massive starvation, war and famine, disease, and not everyone will be save. We saw this since the black plague, 1/3 or Europe, dead do to un-healthy living and life styles. We may see a black plague again.. But this time instead of the Europe.. 1/3 of the world, dead... Or god forbid EVEN MORE.
