We currently have 7.7 billion people in this world and that number is constantly increasing. To put this growth in perspective we only had 6 billion people just 20 years ago, that’s almost a 30% increase in population in just 20 years and according to the UN we are set to exceed 9 billion people by the year 2050. More people mean more food production which also means more pollution.
