10. Six billion miracles is enough.

I bought that bumper sticker near the turn of the century. Here's an article on population doubling. It would be interesting to see a second pie chart based on consumption levels.

Today in science: The Day of 6 Billion
By Deborah Byrd in HUMAN WORLD | SCIENCE WIRE

snip...

In only 40 years, the world population had doubled. In 100 years, it had quadrupled. In only 12 years, it had increased by one billion. Median projections for population growth estimated that by the year 2050, the tally would top 9 billion, with an increase of roughly 77 million people per year.





Several years ago in a local paper there was a LTTE expressing concern about human population & a few weeks later a response saying that people who are so concerned about human population should move to Wyoming. "There's plenty of room there!" It is the same type of thinking of climate change deniers. "If global warming is true then why is it snowing?"
