In 1900 the world population was 1.6 billion. In October it reached 7 billion, and a recent UN report projects that it will reach 9.3 billion by the middle of the century, and over 10 billion by the century’s end. There’s a lot of debate on how many is too many, but it’s hard to deny that most of the great challenges we and our planet face - global warming, biodiversity, energy, food and water supplies, migration, development, war, peace - all stem, to some degree, from the enormous growth in population over the past century.
