Which nations are really responsible for climate change - interactive

Which nations are really responsible for climate change - interactive | Development geography | Scoop.it
There are many ways to view the world's carbon emissions: by national totals or emissions per person; by current carbon output or historical emissions; by production of greenhouse gases or consumption of goods and services; by absolute emissions or economic carbon intensity.

Our interactive map allows you to browse all of these different measurements, each of which provides a different insight. Together they highlight the complexity of divvying up responsibility for climate change and highlight some of the tensions at the heart of the global climate negotiations.

Interactive graphic shows just how few resources are left | Development geography | Scoop.it

Scientific American has put together an interactive feature where you can watch resources disappear before your very eyes. The dates for when things will "run out" are a little fuzzy -- they've got animals pretty much running out five minutes from now, even though they're endangered but not extinct. But there are informative videos, and it's interesting to see how resources will dwindle over time.

Nations are weighing phaseout of fossil fuel subsidies, a growing fiscal burden that ratchets up carbon dioxide emissions by encouraging wasteful oil, natural gas, and coal consumption. The largest subsidies are in developing countries, which spend more than $400 billion annually shielding their populations from high fuel prices. But oil industry tax breaks and other government measures in developed nations also subsidize fossil fuels, to the tune of $45 billion to $75 billion per year.
