Seven Billion People

We're slated to hit 7,000,000,000 in 2012.
We hit 6 billion in 1999.
Thirteen years to add a billion.
We hit 1 billion in 1800.
In 1930, 130 years later, we made 2 billion.
(data from the AP)
So between 1930 and 1999 we added 4 billion in 69 years.

I look forward to that post! I do not consider myself a pessimist, more of a realist.....I have been studying on this question for years now and what I notice is that Americans especially do not want to admit that people around the world could starve or die in wars (due to actions of our government!) while we are comfy and fat in front of our large screen televisions.......so if you can dissaude me I am eager to hear your arguments.

Let me know if there's anything I'm wrong about there of course, it's just preliminary.
