About Population Growth

The number of living humans on earth is now more than 7 billion. This large world population size is a recent development. Just around two hundred years ago the world population was less than 1 billion. Since the 18th century, the world population has seen a rapid increase; between 1900 and 2000 the increase in world population was three times as great as the increase during the entire previous history of humankind. In just one hundred years the world population increased from 1.5 to 6.1 billion people.

How it is effecting our world

Due to population growth some countries have less and less food each day. Oil and gas are the underpinning of what is, historically-speaking, the extremely cheap and fast transportation that today's huge population depends on. The concept "Peak Oil" means that after some year, perhaps between 2015 and 2020, world oil production will max out and then start to decline. About 1 billion people lack access to sufficient water for consumption, agriculture and sanitation.
