Update of Probaway.wordpress.com World Population history tweaked
29 September 2014
The exact number of people living on Earth at the present moment from http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ is 7,264,145,184. This is an estimate, and the historical figures are clearly even more speculative. The previous Probaway post World population history graphed and smoothed took several authorities’ estimates and drew a more easily remembered line through their speculations. Below I have tweaked those charts to make them even easier to memorize.
Update 2019-04-13 11:40 PM PST = 7,697,122,700
People like to think the population is leveling off, but the worldometers current estimate of population growth this year is 23,042,700.
Another fact is that our population is living at a higher energy-consumption level than previously.
A balance between food availability and population will be maintained.
