An interesting article on the implications of the population growth here -->www.kuro5hin.org...

A "population clock" at ibiblio.org projects that world human population will reach 6.4 billion on January 27, 2004. Over 97% of population growth is now in developing countries (Haub, 2003). This growth will worsen the impact of many negative social and ecological trends.

Actual clock here -->ibiblio.org...

im not sure but this seems to happen in europe alot, the low birthrates compared to other countries. maybe its the higher tech/lifestyle of US/EU that has something to do with it?

It seems hard to imagine that with all the disease that is ravaging through the entire continent of Africa that population would be climbing like it is.

It's not affecting birth rate, but it is affecting orphan rate. Epidemic numbers of infant and pre-adult orphans in Africa now. An interesting (but probably flawed) theory I heard about those African diseases, like AIDS, is that nature has effectively increased fertility somehow, leading to population replacement, but also with pop explosions like that...evolution happens in leaps and bounds, and THE CURE FOR AIDS, or rather first humans resistant to it, will be born in a highly affected area of Africa, and research should be done there. Just a macro theory. It really doesn't make sense from a biological perspective, but then what does?
