LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Get people talking this World Population Day
From Angelique Fehr, Sturgis
On July 11 people around the world will be taking part in World Population Day to raise awareness about population issues. But here in the United States, we donâ€™t talk enough about the specific effects our exploding numbers have on wildlife, the planet and our own future.
There are more than 7 billion people on the planet, and weâ€™re adding 227,000 more each day. Every eight seconds another person is born in the United States.
