The World of 7 Billion -- World's Population to Touch 7 Billion by the End of October

The human population of the planet earth has grown up by whopping one billion within just 12 years.

World's Population Reaches 7 Billion
According to the statistics by the United Nations, the world population will reach 7 billion by the end of the month and it took only 144 months to jump from 6 billion to 7 billion. China is on the top with 1.33 billion followed by India and United States with 1.17 billion and 306.8 million. See the graphical presentation below:

Jeffrey D. Sachs, director of the Earth Institute, expressed his concern for the gigantic population climb:

"This is a crowded planet. This is trouble, frankly..."

Certainly it's not an achievement to be cheered by any one who knows that with such speedy population growth, the planet earth is heading seriously close to draining both space and resources.
