Population Officially 7 Billion

The population is seven billion. Seven billion might be a big number, but if that many people were to stand shoulder to shoulder, they would fill up Los Angeles. Two people die and five people are born every second, so basically three more people populate the earth every second. Imagine how many people are born within twenty-four hours! It would take 200 years just to count to seven billion.

    Hey, Rohit

    I really liked your article about the population of Los Angles and how the population grows in the Earth about every 3 seconds. I liked your article because I did not know that it would take 200 years for me to count 7 billion people and I did not know about the population facts you are telling in this article.
