Estimates put the planet at 8 billion in another 14 years,which is an eye blink compared to the 123 years it took us to go from 1 billionto 2 billion.India is set to surpass China as the world's most populous by2030.That means a weighty impact on our planet. How weighty? Ourfriends at Masters Degree Online did the math and found that we humans accountfor just .00018% of the earth's biomass, yet we use 20% of itsresources.
