Described as "The environmental information portal". Appears to be an excellent source of data about world resources - for example, -
"Despite global gains in real income, statistics on poverty and income inequality provide a sobering reminder that, for many, the economic situation is not improving. Some examples:
An American with the average income of the bottom 10% of U.S. residents is better-off than 2/3 of the world population. In 1993, the richest 1% of people in the world received as much income as the bottom 57%. In some Latin American countries, the poorest 20% of the population earns less than 3% of total income. Meanwhile, the top 20% of the population receives over 60% of all income. In China, classified as a "middle income" country by the World Bank, over half of the population earns less than $2 a day in international dollars.
