buncha graphs

i liked #24 the best. the amount of tillable land began it’s exponential rise around 1850 and leveled off around 1950. all (most?) of those other indicators began their respective exponential increase right around 1950. 1950 was a hell of a year. i guess.

i also like all the $ making ads in the comments.

  1. from futhark on OFW:

    “Conclusion: population growth, mapped on a graph, has been almost vertical. Since the world is finite and therefore the idea of infinite growth is absurd, they expect a major geopolitical discontinuity some time between 2010 and 2030. They gave 2026 as their best guess for this negative singularity.”

    there’s that 2025-6 date again, about 7-8 years from now. looks like Brazil might be following Venezuela, also Argentina collapsing now in South America.

  2. all kinda funny. i wonder how steve pinker and bill bill gates might interpret those graphs. we live in the best of all possible worlds, i guess.
