The World now and 100 years ag

|>The World now and
100 years ago<|

In the whole world there
were less than 20,000
... motorcars 100 years ago and
the maximum speed limit was
10 mph (16km/h). 1063 ft (324
meters) tall, the Eiffel Tower was the tallest structure in the
world. Cannabis and heroin
were available over the
counter at corner drugstores.
And pneumonia and influenza
were the leading causes of death. In 1910, the population
of the United States was 92
million and the world
population was 1.7 billion
people. Today, there are more
cars manufactured than their is demand for it. There are
about 1 billion cars and light
trucks on the road. The
maximum speed limit in most
cities is 30 mph, yet the traffic
is so congested that the average speed is just over 10
mph. The tallest building is the
Burj Dubai, at 2,640 ft (800
meters). Cannabis is not
available over the counter,
and is very expensive. The leading causes of death are
heart attacks, cancers, strokes,
and motorcar accidents.
Today, the population of the
earth numbers almost 7 billion
and 300 million roam the United States.
