PostSubject: Population growth increased significantly   Fri Feb 11, 2011 7:15 am

Population growth increased significantly as the Industrial Revolution gathered pace from 1700 onwards.[6] The last 50 years have seen a yet more rapid increase in the rate of population growth[6] due to medical advances and substantial increases in agricultural productivity, particularly beginning in the 1960s,[7] made by the Green Revolution.[8] In 2007 the United Nations Population Division projected that the world's population will likely surpass 10 billion in 2055.[9] In the future, world population has been expected to reach a peak of growth, from there it will decline due to economic reasons, health concerns, land exhaustion and environmental hazards. There is around an 85% chance that the world's population will stop growing before the end of the century.[citation needed] There is a 60% probability that the world's population will not exceed 10 billion people before 2100, and around a 15% probability that the world's population at the end of the century will be lower than it is today. For different regions, the date and size of the peak population will vary considerably.
