Since this is the technology section, how would you come to this conclusion?

"Both numbers have been calculated using UN Population Division figures. The first is an estimate of how many people were alive on your date of birth. It is one possible value based on global population figures and estimates of growth rates over time. Data before 1950 is less accurate than figures after that date. The second number includes calculations based on the methodology of scholar Carl Haub, who estimated how many people had been alive since 50,000 B.C. His calculation has been amended by the UN to include additional points in time."

(Insert unprintable swear word here) I regret to say that this has the same veracity as the world being formed 6,000 years ago. Someone obviously does not know the definition of scholar.

The population of the world has doubled since I was born. Something tells me that that is not a good thing.

That's pretty cool..


Not to be Doom and Gloom, but 9-10 billion people on this planet by 2050 does not sound good or fun. It's pretty scary.

Looks like we need another world war or huge natural disaster to cull the herd....

-or-

We can do away with all the warning labels and dumb laws to allow the stupids in the world to die off....
