In 1804 human population reached 1 billion. At 1900 we were at 1.6 billion. Buy 1970 we were at 3.7 billion. Right now human population is hovering at 6.7 billion. By 2050 the population is expected to reach 9 billion and those are conservative estimates. This is why it’s so important to take care of our resources and do all we can to conserve. We have a finite amount of fossil fuels, minerals and water on this oh-so-special planet. We are going at a breakneck speed and we need to slow things down. Here is a short movie demonstrating our growth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BbkQiQyaYc I hope you watch it.
