It took from the beginning of time, the creation of man, until 1850 for the worlds population to reach a little over one billion. Who knows, in those early years, man did not know how to count, births were not recorded. By 1930 it rose to two billion. Just 30 years later around 1960 the worlds population was three billion. By 1977 the worlds population climber to around four billion. By 1986 it was five billion and ten years later 1996 it had reached six billion. It hit the seven billion mark in 2006. Live births minus deaths the world increases by around 300,000 a day.
