My kid will be post-300M

Posted: October 17, 2006 in Uncategorized
I was born just a few years before the U.S. hit 200,000,000 citizens. The country has grown since, and we apparently hit 300M at 7:46AM EST today, which means my kid didn’t make it under the 300M cap. For those keeping count at home, that took just one generation to grow by 34%.
 
We went from 3 billion world residents in 1960 to 4 billion in 1975 (15 years later). Then we went to 5 billion in 1989, 14 years later. Then we hit 6 billion in 2000 (only 11 years). We’re taking bets on when the world will hit 7 billion…I figure sometime before Christmas…
