A growing population has serious implications for food security, political stability − and climate change.
Population Explosion Lowers Chance Of Managing Climate Change says a new study reports Tim Radford at Responding To Climate Change. It’s very likely (80%) that our population will explode through 9 billion to 12 billion or more by 2100.

This is how YOU can make a difference.
