On October 31st the UN will dub a newborn the world's 7 billionth living person. The 6 billionth, Adnan Nevic, born in October 1999, will be only two weeks past his 12th birthday. This amazing (to me anyway) fact was just published in The Economist magazine. At this current population growth rate, we are in for some very troubled times in the near future (as if things aren't already bad enough)!!!
