Research Overview and Status:

Timelines is the latest and most robust of six models developed over more than a decade. The model includes projections over time for population, consumption (ecological footprint), life expectancy, happiness, age distribution, and economy (Gross World Product, wealth) as totals for the global population and as distributions within the population. Development and testing is continuing through application to historical and current events.
