So by the end of this month the world’s population will surpass 7 billion people, according to the UN. That is a lot of people using a lot of resources.
Forming a human chain with 7 billion people would circle the earth 175 times and have a length of 7 million kilometres. Also it is interesting to note that 4.4 new babies are born every second. For most of human history the population has grown fairly slowly. In the last 50 years the earths population has doubled.
Solar power and organic farming luckily are becoming more and more popular.
What better time to go green? All 7 billion of us have a responsibility to keep our world sustainable. Check out your local cities website for more information. In Toronto go here.
