Media Monday - A Scary Number Seven (7) Billion

Last night, Baby Nargis was born in India.  According to Plan International she represents the seventh billion person on the planet.

While nobody knows for sure that she was indeed that seventh million person...
Whether we have hit seven billion this weekend or not, one needs to still question, how much population can the planet sustain?  What happens if the BIC countries (Brazil, India & China) wants to live at a lifestyle close to what we have in the United States?  How are we going to manage world resources?  These are fundamental questions that keep getting put off for another day... The question is, how long can we put them off until we can not any longer because we are facing crisis?   

Scary thoughts on this All Hallows Eve.
