Who Will Make up the World Population of 2011?

CNN reports that the population of 2011 will reach 7 billion “the vast majority of its growth coming in developing and, in many cases, the poorest nations.” Articles like this are scapegoating most every country–other than the US and Canada, who, according to the article “will account for most of the growth [in the developed world]– half from immigration and half from a natural increase in the population — births minus deaths, according to the report.” The discussion of the “natural” growth in these two countries is disgusting and infuriating, in addition to this blog post that is right on board with the messages presented here.
