9 Charts That Tell You Where Life Is Pretty Terrific

9 Charts That Tell You Where Life Is Pretty Terrific | #Un Mundo Socialmente Responsable | Scoop.it

The Paris-based think tank known as the OECD is just out with its semi-annual survey of how different economies stack up in terms of social well-being. (Well-being is basically the polite way economists talk about happiness.) The organization even has a new data visualization to let you see where your country ranks in certain key measures.

Called "Society at a Glance," the report is well worth a read. But here are some of the most interesting bits of data we found, in no particular order.

Russell Roberts's curator insight, March 22, 8:20 AM

Thanks to reporter Matt Phillips of "The Atlantic Cities" website for this revealing set of bar graphs. The data were compiled by the French think tank "OECD" and showed where nations placed on the "social well being" or happiness scale.  The United States didn't do well in a number of areas...perhaps this is something our political leadership should study before they pass legislation that costs us much but delivers so little.    Aloha, Russ.

'It’s an expensive item of equipment that sits idle most of the time; it requires parking (and often a parking structure) both at origin and at destination; it requires maintenance and is a big hassle all around.'


But at the end the solution is not one, but many interconnected and interdependent.

Sustaining Seven Billion People

Sustaining Seven Billion People | #Un Mundo Socialmente Responsable | Scoop.it

"With seven billion people now living on Earth, the ever growing demand is putting unprecedented pressure on global resources—especially forests, water, and food. How can Earth’s resources be managed best to support so many people? One key is tracking the sum of what is available, and perhaps nothing is better suited to that task than satellites."

Daniel LaLiberte's curator insight, July 6, 9:09 AM

Such studies of the agriculture around the world are essential. The way we are doing agriculture to support seven billion people now, peaking at 9-10 billion in another 60 years, it is clear that we are putting severe strains on the environment.  But we have grown lazy, and we are doing it all wrong.

 

We CAN drastically reduce the amount of meat we consume, and thus quickly reduce the amount of arable land we need.  We CAN grow plants in ways that actually sequester more carbon and improve the soil it over time rather than erode and degrade.  And we CAN in fact grow all the food we need in the space we live in, thus enabling us to recycle all the water used as well, which is mostly just lost in evaporation.

Building a net-zero home is an intricate dance between design, engineering and location. Learn how designers can make your home more beautiful and more energy efficient even if it doesn't go all the way to net-zero. Conversely we wouldn't be talking about net-zero homes if there weren't groups and people pushing the envelope. This week we explore the balance between design and technology when it comes to net-zero homes.

The Energy Cost of Local Food

The Energy Cost of Local Food | #Un Mundo Socialmente Responsable | Scoop.it
Years back a pair of planners, Branden Born and Mark Purcell, warned that there's nothing about smaller scale enterprises that make them inherently more efficient than their larger counterparts. With respect to on-farm energy intensity, they're certainly right.

Via SustainOurEarth
more...
Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, July 7, 4:36 PM

"As I point out in The Energy Basis of Food Security there's a strong relationship between energy prices and food prices owing to the high energy demand associated with food production. As long as local food fails to gain an advantage over larger scale food production in terms of its energy intensity, it's reasonable to expect the price of local food to trend with energy prices just like food from larger-scale operations.

Perhaps the higher energy inputs often needed for small-scale farms partially accounts for why local food tends to be pricier than comparable mass marketed products? While food enterprises in general need to pay more attention to their energy intensity, this is particularly true for smaller enterprises that seek to market their products locally."
