Population has been largely left out of the equation during the decades-long talk about climate breakdown. Nonetheless, babies keep coming. On November 15, 2022, the human population on Earth will pass 8 billion. It took millennia for human global population to get to 2.3 billion where it was in 1940 when my baby version came along. Since then, humans on Earth have multiplied 3.5 times. Nature’s disasters have kept pace; one million species are predicted by U.N. scientists to go extinct this century.
That’s a huge unraveling of creation’s interdependent life support systems that sustain human life.
