Human No. 7,000,000,000

According to the United Nations, the world population topped 7 billion on Monday October 31 (what a great Halloween treat- or trick, depending on how you feel about over population…)

While it is of course impossible to pinpoint the exact baby 7B, many countries like India and the Philippines are insisting the lucky boy or girl was born in their country.

While the global population has hit a landmark number, the world’s humans in general continue to age and some scientists believe that by 2070, elderly people will outnumber children under 15.

AARP is going to have a field day.
