Less under control than we thought…

NYT– The latest UN population growth estimate has a little bad news. It seems we may not level off at a global population quite as low as we thought. Including changes in current trends, they new estimate we will break through the 10 billion mark, around the end of this century. Let’s hope something changes in the future that brings that number back down. (By way of reducing birth rates- through contraception, education, empowerment of women, etc.)
