World Population Passes the 7 Billion Mark: UN

According to the United Nation’s Population Division (UNDESA) the world population would pass the 7 billion mark today.

The clueless humans set another nightmarish milestone: Human demographics are now comparable in scale and quality to the bacterial growth dynamics.

Disaster Calendar 2011 – October 31

[October 31, 2011]  Mass die-offs resulting from human impact and the planetary response to the anthropogenic assault could occur by early 2016.  SYMBOLIC COUNTDOWN: 1,598 Days Left to the ‘Worst Day’ in Human History

  • Global Population. The world population has reached 7 billion, as estimated by the United Nation’s Population Division.
    • The Effective World population: “To the one half of the world who live on less than 2-dollars a day (they receive 300 times less per capita energy than the US citizens) the world must look extremely overpopulated with an effective population of 57 billion! [The EU27 with per capita GDP of $29,900 would account for 21 billion and the United States—per capita GDP of $43,223—for 18 billion of the total effective population.]“

NOTES:

  • October 31, 2011 was selected by the UN body as a symbolic date to mark the occasion.
  • The estimate includes at least a 1-percent margin of error, experts say.
  • Based on the US government Census Bureau’s world population clock, the seven billion mark will be reached in late March 2012 .
  • According to the Population Reference Bureau, a private organization based in Washington, the 7 billion mark was reached earlier this month.
  • Globally, an estimated 5 babies are born every second.
