How Green is Your State? Find Out With This Interactive Map | Worth The Green | Scoop.it
MPHOnline created an interactive map to determine the best and the worst (How Green is Your State?

There are many ways to assess the greenness of your home state. MPHOnline‘s approach was to consider a state’s energy makeup, gasoline consumption per capita, greenhouse gas emissions, air and water quality, recycling efforts and availability of public transportation.

Using this data from state energy, waste, transportation and environmental management agencies, MPHOnline created an interactive map to determine how each state ranks.

Maryland:  Not Very Green, except, perhaps, on recycling.

Electric Car's curator insight, November 18, 2013 11:56 PM

Spend your hard earned dollars on research into free, clean energy hich maximizes output of solar, wind, other unused free sources of energy,  instead of "investing" in poisonous drilling and mining, shipping oil hungry equipment polluting the planet, and paying ever increasing prices for ancient fossilized sunshine just for electricity production.

Open Data in Charts: Comparing the open society across countries

Open Data in Charts: Comparing the open society across countries | Worth The Green | Scoop.it

How open-data compares against other national metrics


The Open Knowledge Foundation has inaugurated an index of the most open-data-friendly countries. Britain and America lead. Yet comparing the index against GDP, corruption perceptions (from Transparency International’s annual ranking) and the UN Human Development Index uncovers surprising findings. The clusters and outliers suggest that for middle-income countries there is a link with open-data practices, but not among the richest countries. Likewise, some of the least corrupt countries are nevertheless middling in making their data open. Together, the charts suggest there is still a long way to go to get states to release their data openly...

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:15 PM

Aside from the mass devastation i think it would be pretty cool of all the ice melted. As the interactive map shows there would be in inland sea in australia which i can turn into the AUs great lakes. Also imagine the possiblility of being able to take a vacation to antartica and not having to dress for absurdly negative tempatures, all the undiscovered land and preservated fossils. It would be a interestling link to the past that only in the future we could experience.

Would Belgium be covered in water if all the ice melted?
