6.2 Billion People and Rising

It took humans until about 1800 to reach a global population of one billion. In 130 years the population doubled. Since then adding a billion people to Earth's population has taken less and less time.

1 billion in 1800
2 billion in 1930 (130 years)
3 billion in 1960 (30 years)
4 billion in 1974 (14 years)
5 billion in 1987 (13 years)
6 billion in 1999 (12 years)

Do not underestimate the problem of human overpopulation

Exploding Population is the No1 Threat to Mankind and the Earth

We have 50 years to get off the planet
