If you have any useful links or references, please post them here. I may add some of these to the links page on the main site.

Nothing spammy please. I'm looking for genuinely useful stuff, i.e. statistics and data, infographics, trends, timelines, that sort of thing. Basically stuff that helps predict the future!

I'll start with a future population estimator from the United Nations -

http://esa.un.org/un..._population.htm


And another -

http://esa.un.org/un...s/pop-tot_0.htm


Another by Google -

https://docs.google....pa0Y5REE#gid=10


There's also a Muslim demographics page here, with tons of stats for 1990-2030 (this was already posted in another thread, but it's useful to have it here too) -

http://features.pewf...lation-graphic/

I will pin this thread, so it's easier to find.

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

2050 pathways energy calculator (UK)

The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. We need a transformation of the UK economy while ensuring secure, low carbon energy supplies to 2050, and face major choices about how to do this. In 2010, DECC built the 2050 Calculator to help the public engage in the debate, and for Government to ensure its short- and medium-term planning was consistent with achieving the long-term aim. In the Carbon Plan published in December 2011, we used the Calculator to illustrate three 2050 futures that show some of the plausible routes towards meeting the target.

I'd add this (not only the nearby planets): http://en.wikipedia....able_exoplanets And actual list of planet candidates, with their sizes, equilibrium surface temperature, level of confirmation and other criteria: http://archive.stsci...candidates.html

I tried to compare the USA and UK on energy. It didn't work - I got a 404 error. Not a good start.
