Table of Contents

The new Vital Signs 1998 gives you more than 100 charts, graphs and tables that show you the worldwide trends that are changing our lives, for better and for worse. It includes the latest data on critical global trends, presented in simple but compelling graphics, along with concise, thoughtful analysis.

The global trends documented in the book--from spreading water scarcity to big increases in wind power--will play a large part in determining the quality of our lives and our children's lives in the next decade.

This seventh volume in the series from the Worldwatch Institute shows in graphic form the key trends that often escape the attention of the news media and world leaders--and are often ignored by economic experts as they plan for the future.
