Population GrowthDec 14, 2006

According to reports released by the Center for Environment & Population, the United States is expected to hit 400 million people shortly before the year 2050.

This is unique among developed countries says the report, that the United States continues to grow rapidly. Currently the population in the U.S. is 300 million legal citizens. With these numbers experts are expecting the number of households to grow by about 113 million by the year 2010.

There are many downsides to having such a hefty population. A few of those are rapid loss of farmland, biodiversity, fresh water shortages, and decreasing open space.

Of course there are also upsides; there will be more opportunities for practitioners with knowledge of energy efficient and sustainable housing techniques.

With a growth like this happening in such a short span of time, there will be many downsides when considering housing woes, but there is always an upside.
