This is a video created by the American Museum Of Natural History depicting earth's population growth since humans began migrating out of Africa some 100,000 years ago. I learned a lot by watching it. Mostly that there are entirely too many people now.
It took 200,000 years for our human population to reach 1 billion--and only 200 years to reach 7 billion. But growth has begun slowing, as women have fewer babies on average. When will our global population peak? And how can we minimize our impact on Earth's resources, even as we approach 11 billion?
Are you thinking what I'm thinking? "You want to nuke the entire planet?" Of course I do, that's one of my things, but that's not what I was thinking now. "What was it then?" Okay fine it was nuking the planet but I don't like how you guessed it so easy.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to carey, who agrees if the population keeps increasing we're going to need to start building additions to earth.
