So China has decided to get rid of the one child policy, there will be huge implications on population, although due to rising expenses some speculate that a lot of families will stick to having one child. 

What are your thoughts?

Interesting BBC Article

The BBC just released an interesting article. ‘How much do you know about the world?’ 

“The world may have many problems, from climate change to armed conflict, natural disasters, poverty and the oppression of women and minorities – but where does population growth fit into this catalogue of woes?”

Check out the quiz as well – and let us know how you do!

Population Clock

This link is crazy to watch: http://www.census.gov/popclock/

It is hard to imagine our population increasing that rapidly, but then again our population was only 3 Billion in 1960 and it is over 7 Billion today and is predicted to hit 9 Billion by 2045. Will we change enough to accommodate the rapidly rising population?

Would love to hear your thoughts
