Sentence: The total world population, per the 2008 estimate by the United States Census International Programs Center is 6,679,493,900. As of February 2009, the world's population is estimated to be about 6.76 billion. Overcrowding and people pollutions are wreakening our planet. Terra caught a influmenza and is in a dangerous state of flux.

Etymology: INFLUENZA, MEN. Men - in the broader sense of the word, is often used to mean all people. Influenza - a widespread illness. Ergo: If the world has caught a wide spread illness from too many men, it suffers influmenza. /// Wreakening is a verbotomy of wreak and weakening. /// The last word flux, means not only a state of constant change, but archaically was a term for severe diarrhea ... something mankind needs to stop inflicting on our planet.
