Trust in public institutions has been going down recently in OECD countries. The percentage of the population reporting confidence in national government went down every year from 2009-2013. This visualization shows the OECD-average estimate of trust in governments over the period 2006-2014, using Gallup's data.

The World Bank poverty headcount ratio at $1.90 a day (2011 PPP) (% of population) is the percentage of the population living on less than $1.90 a day at 2011 international prices. After 25 years of steady decline, global extreme poverty is expected to rise in 2020 for the first time in over 20 years. Disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic compounds forces of conflict and climate change, which were already slowing poverty reduction progress. Data from 2020 has not been reflected on official statistics yet.

The average global temperature on Earth has increased by a little more than 1° Celsius (2° Fahrenheit) since 1880. Two-thirds of the warming has occurred since 1975, at a rate of roughly 0.15-0.20°C per decade. A one-degree global change is significant because it takes a vast amount of heat to warm all the oceans, atmosphere, and land by that much.
