Some chilling thoughts on a cold winter day: The population of the world will reach 7 billion by 2011, and 9 billion by 2045, according to the January 2011 National Geographic.
Gee, people of the world have really [been] loving up a storm in the last 100 years. The world population at the time of my birth (I'm 85) was less than 2 billion — it was only 1 billion in 1800.
Too bad the world was finally discovered to be round, instead of flat as originally believed. Maybe then we could have shoved a billion or two over the edge to lessen the pressure.
