Don’t Panic: The Truth About Population

Rosling’s video on population covered a lot of the issues that I have wondered about whenever I hear something about world population. Mainly I was wondering about the population growth caused by family sized. My thoughts were based a little closer to home and on a smaller scale. I was thinking about the baby boom here in the US and was wondering how long the population would continue to grow at such a rapid pace with family sizes shrinking. It was not uncommon for families to have six or seven kids, now that is almost unheard of. I found the video interesting because there are a lot of the same ideas only on a world scale with legitimate facts instead of just my uncertain opinion. It just left me wondering if the population will soon start to decrease and return to a more manageable level.
