    In 1800 the world had about one billion people. In 1900 there were still
    only about 1.6 billion. On or about October 12, 1999, the world population
    reached six billion. It has continued to climb at an annual rate of 1.4
    percent, adding 200,000 people each day or the equivalent of the population
    of a large city each week. The rate, though beginning to slow, is still
    basically exponential. People born in 1950 are the first to see the human
    population double in their lifetime, from 2.5 billion to over six billion.
