Population: The World Is Set to Have Its 7th Billion Living Person in 2011. Are We Headed Towards Overpopulation? - Ecocentric - TIME.com:

Some time late in 2011—at least according to the people-crunchers at the U.N. Population Reference Bureau—humanity will reach a new demographic milestone with the birth of the 7th billion living person. (As a measure of just how fast global population is growing, the 6th billionth living person—Bosnian Adnan Nevic—is only 11.)
How long will the Cornucopians be right?
