Hello! From now on, you can call me #4,770,751,276.
Tomorrow is 7 Billion Day and to celebrate, Population Action International has created a little web app that calculates your number amongst the nearly 7 billion people alive today. Nearly 2.3 billion people have been born since the early 80s, which, as noted in the chart in yesterday’s post, was approximately the world’s population in the 50s (when my parents were born). Find out your number by clicking the image below and let us know what your thoughts are on reaching 7 billion.
