China’s Nail Houses


China Nail Houses

This is a wonderful collection of images from China about people who have stood in the way of development.  What’s quite enlightening is that it clearly shows that there is no such thing as compulsory purchase in China and the individual does have the right not to have their house bulldozed.  Real life examples for the film UP.

World Population Clocks

7 billion people

A world of 7 Billion People

The National Geographic have produced some excellent visual diagrams on world population here.  Make sure you check out the zoomable human face.

A nice interactive map of Europe population can be seen here
