It’s impossible to have an accurate total for population since every eight seconds a new life comes into the world within the American borders. Throw in immigration and we’re adding a significant amount to the population every day. Even with the deaths of millions of Americans per year, there is still a large uptick in our population.
Not sure about you, but this scares me a bit. At this rate, within my lifetime, we could see America’s population density reach the levels that India now hosts. Um, that’s too many people for this mid-western boy who happens to like his backyard; NOT people living on top of me.
Still, no matter your take on this, it is a significant time in American history. It’s quite obvious that the world, not just America, may be populating itself right out of a food supply.
