Happy Halloween, everyone!
Today is not just a day of ghosts and goblins. It is, in fact, according to the United Nations, a momentous day in human history. It is the day world population hits 7 billion. True, some population clocks say we have a bit more ticking to do before we reach the big 7Bn. But no matter how you set your watch, the pivotal event will happen soon, if it hasn’t already.
This leaves a lot of experts scratching their heads, trying to figure out just how we as people will survive—all of us together, eating and demanding so many things of Mother Earth.
I’ve written a little story about this over at The Faster Times.
Meanwhile, Jerry shares a glimpse here of one hungry, crowded planet.
