Population

The total number of people.

The population that has needed - and will need feeding forms a terrifying progression, assuming birth control fails to put some serious brakes on!

From less than 500 million in 1665, 870 million in 1800 and 1,000 million in 1850, the estimated population had increased to 4,000 by 1975 and if things continue in this manner will be about 30,000 million by the year 2070.
