According to the UN, on Monday 10/31/11 the World’s population is expected to reach 7 billion. It’s amazing how analyst would know this figure, but that’s what they are reporting.
Interesting to also note that the World’s population has grown by 1 billion over the past 13 years, over 1/2 the population lives in cities, and over 40% is below the age of 25 years old.
The UN anticipates the figures to grow to 10-15 billion by the end of the century. If that’s the case, can we expect a food and housing shortage? I better stock up!
