The world’s population reached seven billion, according to United Nations (UN) demographers. That means that in just over ten years, we have added more than one billion people, the same number over the complete 19th century. The world’s population has never before risen so sharply. UN predictions indicate that by mid-century, the total number will have reached somewhere between 8 and 10.5 billion.
