Transnational North American Rail

The rail network of North America continues to consolidate, but it is beginning to become transnational as well.Since NAFTA, Canadian National has acquired several US regional railways, and Kansas City Southern has purchased Transportacion Ferroviaria Mexicana — both part of a drive towards a "NAFTA Rail" alliance. Together the eight Class I railroads (defined as having more than $277.7m in revenues) shown on the map control approximately two thirds of all rail on the continent. There are more than four hundred Class II and III railways. From http://www.radicalcartography.net/index.html?rail

Number of undernourished children projected in 2050

Number of undernourished children projected in 2050. Food security is likely to remain out of reach for many people. Child malnutrition will be difficult to eradicate even by 2050 (low to medium certainty) and is projected to increase in some regions in some Millennium Assessment scenarios, despite increasing food supply under all four scenarios (medium to high certainty) and more diversified diets in poor countries (low to medium certainty).
