    in 2000.  Did you ever read the Global 2000 Report that Jimmy Carter had prepared?  I've got a copy somewhere, and I will say reading that when it came out in 1980 as a 16-year-old depressed the hell out of me.

    Here is a link to Gerald O Barney's page (he directed the project) with links to the Report and also to a bunch of translations.

    In particular, reading his Preface to the Pergamon edition is interesting as a description of how the report came to be, a demonstration of how far we've come in terms of modeling capabilities (and how we still ignore their predictions), and how truly unfortunate it is that Reagan won the 1980 election.
