Over the weekend my 10-year old daughter, was so excited to show me a website she learned about at school last week. She could hardly contain her excitement as she explored the www.worldpopulationhistory.org site and played a timeline on the history of the world population.
Visit the site and I think you will find it interesting. What I found once I got over how quickly our world population has grown, was the realization of the impact of this growth on our planet. Given my background, I couldn’t help but think about the exponential energy consumption that accompanies this expansion, along with the challenges that come with it.
I was proud that my daughter similarly understood this impact and that it was important to her. It’s not often that what we do for a living crosses over to our personal lives in a truly meaningful manner. I’m proud that the work we do at CCG is doing our part, as daunting as this global perspective is, in helping reduce the energy consumption of our ever-expanding population.
