The Swede and I were just watching "An Inconvenient Truth" for his ecology class. One of the rather interesting statics mentioned in the documentary is that in 1950, the population of the Earth was about 2 billion. It's now about 6.5 billion, which is just incredible. It took countless generations to get to 2 billion, and a single generation to get to 6.4 billion. This has been caused by advances in modern medicine and technology, and an incredible economic prosperity in many parts of the world. Populations cannot increase without surpluses of food and other resources.
And of course, people have been doing a lot of fucking.
