Over 50 full-colour world maps and graphics break down hardcore statistics to provide a compelling analysis of all the political, social, economic and ecological nightmares that keep us awake at night.

  • The world's car population has grown five times as fast as the human population over the last 50 years. 
  • Wal-Mart's sales revenue exceeds the GDP of 150 countries. 
  • Climate change may put 2.7 billion at risk of armed conflict.
  • Germany generates more tourists than anywhere else. 
  • Americans use 160 times more water than people in Rwanda.
