Today is World Population Day

Today is World Population Day. It was established on July 11, 1987 when world population hit 5 billion. This yearโ€”just 24 years laterโ€”world population is expected to surpass 7 billion. There is hardly cause to celebrate when you consider it took some 50,000 years for the population to reach 5 billion, and just 24 to add another 2 billion.
