6.5 billion? No problem!

In 1997, the earth's population topped at 6 billion. Today, less than a decade later, it's 6.5 billion.

Wired has some interesting things to say about it, and even though Earth's rate of growth is declining, we're still expected to surpass 7 billion by 2012, which is only six years from now.

That's a lot of poopie diapers.

Or birth control just isn't what it's cracked up to be :) For instance, I am one of three birth control babies...and that's just in my immediate family...
