Nice find, enjoyed the site.

FWIW:
The sustained 4% per year strikes me as optimistic.

Wonderful, thank you. I don't normally read the Guardian (a tad to the left of my politics!) but this is fantastic. Something I can use to liven up my lectures.

I take it that somewhere on that page there is a linhk, or a button to activate this thing. I know I'm nearly blind but I can't find it. All I see are the usual share buttons for Bookface, Titter etc

SSK,

below the usual twitter buttons etc there is a big blue rectangular map of the earth.

click on that to get to the main presentation... unless your browser is blocking it. You on a computer or an IPad?

No map here, I'll have a look when I get home.

It occurs that when I hang up my hat in the middle of this year, I will have worked in the air transport business for 47% of its entire history :ooh:
