Earth Clock

Stats - as they say, read 'em and weep. While the figures can't be taken as absolutely accurate, they are drawn from many sources and do give a 'best guess' real time example of some of the issues we're grappling with (sources include United Nations, EPA and the US Census Bureau). Nevertheless, some figures are more than a little dubious - particularly the generous amount of oil remaining. For those who want to watch not only how many people are being born, but also want to, er... watch them die - see Breathing Earth. Poodwaddle.com

I predict there will never again be a two term president. Too many problems, too few solutions. Each human will need to learn this simple equation. X over Y equals Z. Where X is humility, Y is egoism, and Z is internal happiness.

Craig, thank you for sharing this widget. It gives urgency to problems that can't be seen and/or are beyond the short term sight of the average individual.

Really amazing! It shows us where we are going. The increase in CO2, world population and world temperature is alarming.
