WORLD POPULATION: QUICK FACTS

It’s sobering to think that on New Year’s Eve, 1999, when Australia looked forward to hosting the Olympic Games, there were a billion fewer people on the planet.

A mere 12 years – that’s all it’s taken to add a billion more souls to Earth.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words (make that an even billion), so here The Hoopla brings you the most startling on-line graphs, timelines and videos to help you make sense of how our successful species has exploded in numbers.

    A lot of small countries should also offer asylum to Assange.
    There’d be no risks in it : safety in numbers.
    Note, that there is a vacancy for a new Nonaligned Nations club
