Up with People?

Today is World Population Day, and this is the year Earth’s humans will number 7 billion.

To get a sense of how rapidly this increase is occurring, visit the 7 Billion Actions site and watch the counter at the top of the screen. It doesn’t change by single numerals; it changes in twos and threes and fours.

Now start imagining each number as an infant in your living room…
