From the WSJ — As the first decade of the 21st century comes to a close, the Census Bureau projects that on Jan. 1, 2010, the total U.S. population will be 308,400,408. This would represent an increase of 2,606,181, or 0.9%, from New Year’s Day 2009. In January 2010, one birth is expected to occur every eight seconds in the United States and one death every 12 seconds. Meanwhile, net international migration is expected to add one person every 37 seconds to the U.S. population in January 2010. Combined with births and deaths, that means an increase in the total U.S. population of one person every 14 seconds. Close to the end of the new decade, in July 2019, the Census Bureau projects the U.S. head count will have risen to 338,190,000.
That’s a lot of potential green industry consumers.
