Seven Billion

Cyrus is really starting to figure out the world around him…and just in time as his sibling is soon to arrive! We were out in the courtyard and he noted, “They built a trail so I can ride my bike.” Then we were talking about what lives under the ivy…worms, bugs, spiders, chipmunks. Frogs? Elephants? Unicorns? Dragons? Truckdrivers? “No, Trucks live on the road.”

Then when we were going in Cyrus started to hide in the bushes. He stated, “I found camoflouge.” Inside Shira told him to wait and he said, “Used to wait…that’s Arcade Fire!”

From New Yorker: Sometime on October 31st, the world’s population will hit seven billion. This is according to the United Nations Population Fund (Currently at 6,970,135,579)…around ten thousand years ago, there were maybe five million people on Earth. (By the way Cyrus loves the Disney Earth Dvd) By the time of Christ it had climbed to about two hundred million. The billion mark was around 1800. By the 1920’s two billion! Now it’s at about one billion per 12-13 years.
