Using Infographics to Educate the World About Human Rights

Using Infographics to Educate the World About Human Rights | green infographics | Scoop.it
As individuals, we may disagree on many issues, from philosophy to politics, to what constitutes proper nutrition. But if there is one topic everyone recognizes as tremendously important, it’s that everyone is entitled to basic human rights.

One of the biggest challenges to getting people the rights they deserve as human beings, however, is awareness. And many human rights activist organizations have turned to visualization to help inform the public about issues going on in the world. At Visual.ly, we recognize this struggle to inform, so we’ve decided to open up a Human Rights topic on our newly redesigned site. This topic will provide a place for people to educate themselves about many of the humanitarian movements around the planet. To help kick off the category and raise awareness, here are 12 visualizations about humanitarian issues...

It Takes More Than Data to Make a Decision

It Takes More Than Data to Make a Decision | green infographics | Scoop.it
The Environmental Protection Agency last week launched its much-awaited database reporting on the greenhouse gas emissions of major power plants. You can go to ghgdata.epa.gov and find out how many tons of carbon dioxide, methane and other gases are being put out by facilities in your community or state.

It’s a major advance for transparency on greenhouse emissions, and analysts and activists will have a field day with the data. But will it really help the public move forward on making energy decisions?

Keep the Coast Clear: How to visualize ocean trash

Keep the Coast Clear: How to visualize ocean trash | green infographics | Scoop.it

Verrier's eye-catching rendering depicts objects bobbing in an ocean. The graphic correlates depth to the number collected since the first Coastal Cleanup day in 1986. Cigarettes butts (52,907,756 collected), stick out of the water, and plastic food wrappers (more than 14 million), float just below the surface. Appliances (117,356 of which have been hauled away) float near the bottom, in light deprived, gray depths. In an instant, it's easy to see how difficult it is for marine life to survive in that much detritus. And that, precisely, is the genius of Verrier's visualization...

Infographic: Understanding Carbon Offsets

Infographic: Understanding Carbon Offsets | green infographics | Scoop.it
With only 13 percent of carbon emissions naturally sequestered a year, the concept of offsets is meant to lessen our growing carbon footprint.

When we exhale, we release carbon dioxide into the air around us. That carbon dioxide is naturally removed from the atmosphere by plants and the ocean in what is known as the carbon cycle. Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution in the 1700s, human activities like burning coal and cutting down forests have thrown off the carbon cycle's delicate balance.

Take a look at our latest infographic to see why the concept for carbon offsets were first created.
