National Geographic promote the launch of “Population 7 Billion” — a 7-part series on global population — highlighting the fact that seven billion people now live on earth. In 1800 it was only one billion. Now every second five people are born and two people die.

The fact about Los Angeles fitting all 7 billion people standing shoulder to shoulder blew my mind. I need to go lie down.
