7 Billion: How Did We Get So Big So Fast?

It was just over two centuries ago that the global population was 1 billion — in 1804. But better medicine and improved agriculture resulted in higher life expectancy for children, dramatically increasing the world population, especially in the West.

As higher standards of living and better health care are reaching more parts of the world, the rates of fertility — and population growth — have started to slow down, though the population will continue to grow for the foreseeable future.

U.N. forecasts suggest the world population could hit a peak of 10.1 billion by 2100 before beginning to decline. But exact numbers are hard to come by — just small variations in fertility rates could mean a population of 15 billion by the end of the century.

Population Growth
The growing world population affects food and water supplies, ecological balance, and the overall quality of life for everyone. This animation presents a variety of facts and projected statistics to reveal the severity of our growing population.

Florida water quality and conservation
Florida is dependent on its water for the economy, public health and enjoyment. This video demonstrates the role that landscapes play in protecting our water supply from pollution and wasteful consumption.
Discharges from Lake Okeechobee, runoff from agricultural land, runoff from urban streets, and runoff from gardens containing fertilizers all contribute to the decline in the rivers and estuaries.
Ornamental landscapes use 30% of household water, contributing greatly to water supply problems.
The video encourages the public to limit the use of grass in their landscapes as one tool in the repair of Florida's water problems.
