Today is the day the U.N. has deemed the 7 billion milestone day; so far different population sites have differing by-the-second numbers-close to or already over 7 billion. Population Action is tracking and also can show you what number of the 7 billion you are.
World Population Balance is tracking too and says that net increase is 142 people per minute. Wow. What ever exact moment we hit 7 billion, to me it’s not a moment to celebrate, but to think seriously about how even if you have done one of the best things to help population and carbon emission issues by not having kids, what are ways to help the overpopulation and resource depletion problems our world faces…to chew more on this soon. Until then, what are your thoughts? Currently tallying the October On-the-Ground responses; will report back tomorrow!
