Breathing Earth: CO2 rates by country in real-time

Breathing Earth: CO2 rates by country in real-time | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it
A visual real-time simulation that displays the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, birth rates, and death rates of every country in the world.

Breathing Earth, a real-time simulation displays the CO2 emissions of every country in the world, as well as their birth and death rates.
Although the CO2 emission, birth rate and death rate data used in Breathing Earth comes from reputable sources, data that measures things on such a massive scale can never be 100% accurate. Please note however that the CO2 emission levels shown here are much more likely to be too low than they are to be too high...

Footspotting: Global Carbon Footprint Infographic

Footspotting: Global Carbon Footprint Infographic | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it

As Sustainability month draws to a close, we've dug up a gem from the Coroflot archives: Stanford Kay's excellent infographic of global carbon emissions.

Kay's design succeeds in representing a potentially overwhelming set of data on several levels: some 200+ different countries are represented by bubbles, color-coded by continent, where the size of each is proportional to its carbon emissions.

Moreover, the arrangement of the bubbles completes the metaphor, adding a further dimension of scale to the graphic: it is difficult, if not impossible, to see the big picture when one is perusing the names of the individual countries. Thus, Kay's infographic also reminds us not to miss the forest for the trees.
