7 Billion People!

Around now, the total population of the world is expected to reach 7 billion, for the first time in history.

Of course, the population increase brings about some pretty serious questions, especially if we carry on like this:

  • Where will we all live?
  • Is there space for 8/9/10 billion?
  • What will we all eat and drink?
  • Will English still be the world’s most spoken language?
  • Which countries will decline in population, and which will increase?
  • What other changes will happen?
