CTBUH and it's 2020 prognosis

So I saw this comparison diagram today:

December 2011:http://ctbuh.org/TallBuildings/Heigh...S/Default.aspx

this gives us a good opportunity to analyse if we are too optimistic about future skyscrapers based on current under construction and proposed projects

Abandoned means either on hold or started and then left unfinished. Either way, construction commenced and currently no one is working on it

some new towers came, some old failed, but the overall picture seems to stay the same. it will be interesting to see what gets actually done by 2020 in the end. While these are not the same towers, the prognosis of 2007 seems to be a bit too optimistic in the tallest towers there, but overall seem to hit in the right direction of distribution, I always thought a guess for such a long distance is nonsense since many projects fail, but there are others that take their spot, so it might actually make sense to soon make a first prognosis for 2025 or 2030 with current proposed buildings trends.
