A little over a decade ago, the world’s population stood at 6 billion. By the end of October, it will reach 7 billion.

With five babies being born every second, 78 million people are added to the global community each year.

The population was fewer than 1billion in 1800, 3billion in 1960 and 6 billion as recently as 1999.
Population explosion: There will be 7 billion people on earth by the autumn, experts predict


According to the United Nations, the next landmark statistic will be 8 billion in 2025.

Much of the dramatic increase can be accounted for by the world’s poorest nations, which are expected to double their numbers over the next decade.

‘With the population still growing by about 80million each year, it’s hard not to be alarmed,’ said Robert Kunzig, author of an article entitled ‘7 Billion’ in National Geographic magazine.

in the developing and the underdeveloped nations of the world.
