Human population reached 7.1 billion in 2013, more than double the number of people in 1960. Our use of energy and resources has grown even more rapidly. From 1860 to 1991, human population quadrupled in size, and energy consumption increased 93-fold. For thousands of years our population grew relatively slowly, reaching 1 billion for the first time in 1825. Now we are adding 1 billion people every 13 years.
