State of the World
It is by Worldwatch, which claims to be non-partisan, and seems to be somewhat so. They aren't too hawkish anyway. Some might find them too lefty.
My problem with this review, and others like it, is that it has some pretty serious assumptions that are left implicit. Like, "urbanization is largely a positive demographic trend." But, you know, according to whom? Based on what? Good for whom? Maybe urbanization is a good thing and maybe it isn't, but they haven't really given much discourse/debate/data either way.
Still, some interesting/scary trends going on, for all you news junkies.
