Contrary to all of the “We’re All Going To Die!!!!” beating of the chest, whinging, and moaning, the world really is doing pretty well.

I’ve seen these statistics before, but here’s a great video of them. Take a minute and check it out. It’s amazing what’s happened in only 200 years. Average life span nearly doubles for one thing.

Sure, we have a long ways to go, but we’re not doing to bad as a species, normally.

FYI: If you didn’t know already, I’ve been ex-communicated from the Church of Global Warming and their screaming rants on how we’re all going to die.
