According to the “World Population Clock” there are over 7,151,705,400 people on the earth right now. When you look at this clock online it is amazing to see the rapidity with which it moves up. The same source has the population of the United States at 317,630,369. I also saw, and was a little shocked to learn, that the population of the USA is over twice that of Russia (142,470,272). Whatever all this may mean to you, to me it means that there are a whole lot of folks in this world!
