INFOGRAPHIC: How food waste has become a huge global problem

INFOGRAPHIC: How food waste has become a huge global problem | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Every year, an estimated 1.2 to 2 billion tons of food is wasted—a massive amount of food that, if saved, would be more enough to feed the world’s hungry. Food waste isn’t just a humanitarian issue however; the problem is also a waste of land, water, energy and money. To put food wastage in perspective, Arbtech created an infographic that points out some of the world’s worst offenders and explains how food loss occurs throughout the supply chain. Click through to learn more about food waste and, most importantly, what you can do to help.

From the University of North Carolina's School of Government comes this infographic that compares Metro against four other transit systems in major U.S. cities. There's even a comparison of complaints, with D.C.'s three being unreliable service, weekend track work and wait times, and faulty escalators.

More Than 800,000 Scientific Papers In One Beautiful Infographic

More Than 800,000 Scientific Papers In One Beautiful Infographic | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

ArXiv is an online archive that stores hundreds of thousands of scientific papers in physics, mathematics, and other fields. The citations in those papers link to one another, forming a web, but you're not going to see those connections just by sifting through the archive.

So physicist Damien George and Ph.D student Rob Knegjens took it on themselves to create Paperscape, an interactive infographic that beautifully and intuitively charts the papers.

The infographic is a mass of circles. Each circle represents a paper, and the bigger a circle is, the more highly cited it is. The papers are color-coded by discipline--pink for astrophysics, yellow for math, etc.--and papers that share many of the same citations are placed closer together.

Data Visualization: Explore the United States of Energy | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Finally… After almost 50 years of dependence on foreign sources to meet our growing energy needs, our country is finally in a position to begin reversing the trend. Through advances in drilling technology, discoveries of new oil and natural gas reserves and swift progress in the renewables sector, the United States is setting a course for energy self-sufficiency.

The complex story of energy in America and making it relevant to an increasingly distracted public remains one of our biggest challenges as energy industry communicators. In the information economy, there’s a lot of loose change. Content that lacks context. A rapidly growing punditocracy. An immense amount of noise.

Someone has to break through.

 

In the spirit of this endeavor, we created the United States of Energy map, the first data visualization piece of its kind to comprehensively detail our nation’s vast and diverse energy portfolio...

How Much Is the Internet's Electric Bill? [INFOGRAPHIC]

How Much Is the Internet's Electric Bill? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it
The data centers that keep the Internet running require an incredible amount of electricity every year ... and they waste most of it.


While surfing the web, you’re probably more concerned with the charge left on your laptop’s battery. But how much power does it require to keep the Internet itself running?

Powering worldwide data centers for major web companies like Google and Amazon is a huge undertaking. Between the servers and their cooling systems, 'data barns' consume 30 billion watts annually, about 1.5% of global electricity. And at the rate the Internet is growing and adding users, expect that to rise significantly in the next several years.


Are these centers being run efficiently? What toll does it take on the environment just to make sure your Facebook status (and a billion other Facebook users’) reaches the masses?

Infographic: Climate Change and Human Responsibility | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

It can't be denied any longer: Sea levels are rising, major droughts are continuing, and record hot summers are being experienced al around the world.

A recent study conducted by Yale University and George Mason University finds that for the first time since the research began in 2008, the majority of Americans believe that global warming is mostly a man-made phenomenon. And as sobering images of catastrophes make headlines, people are recognizing that the effects of their actions are not just an increasing danger to the world but a direct threat to themselves and their families.

Renewable Energy + Clean Power in Europe [Infographic] | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Germany has become more than just a leader in standard renewable energy uptake; it is making a play for commercial leadership and technological primacy in the increasingly competitive global renewable energy business.

Companies understand their customers want to see more renewable energy in action, and German regulators understand that they need to find ways to put more renewable energy, including wind power, onto the grid to replace planned coal and nuclear power plant retirements.

In the continental context, the EU is preparing to release its latest communication on an integrated energy market ahead of a goal of operational integration it has set for 2014.

Renewable Energy Realities: US Energy Transparency Infographic

Renewable Energy Realities: US Energy Transparency Infographic | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Renewable energy enjoys broad support in the US where people expect the government to support emerging clean power technologies- Americans more concerned about the state of the economy than the threat of climate change: 41% of respondents ranked climate change in the lowest category as a threat facing the world and 51% ranked the economic recession in the highest category in the recent 2012 Global Consumer Wind Study.

When asked to what extent does the electric utility industry cause human-action induced climate changes, 32% of GCWS respondents answered to a certain degree and 39% answered to a high or very high degree.

The overwhelming majority (67%) of respondents said that they would prefer to have their electricity sources supplied by renewables, versus 9% for fossil fuels and 8% for nuclear.

78% of respondents said that they would prefer to see renewables such as wind, solar, hydro, biomass and geothermal developed over the next five years.

3 tips for companies to reduce carbon in their supply chains  [infographic] | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

Cutting carbon is not just about reducing emissions. The bulk of the problem lies along the supply chain, which should be meaningfully engaged.

The corporate sector is facing some stark and irrefutable truths regarding climate change.

First, at over 400 parts per million, atmospheric carbon is skyrocketing. If large companies are going to achieve their carbon reduction targets, it's imperative that they engage their supply base.

An Infographic Breakdown Of The World's Greenest Cities

An Infographic Breakdown Of The World's Greenest Cities | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

This infographic focuses on the cities of London, New York, Vancouver, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Stockholm.


It’s hard to quantify what makes a city "greener" than any other metropolis, but there are some clues: car ownership, green space, bicycle usage, solar installations, recycling, and water consumption are just a few factors that create environmentally responsible cities.

An infographic from HouseTrip lays out what different cities are doing in an easy-to-read format. A handful of major world cities stand out as leaders. This infographic focuses on London, New York, Vancouver, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Stockholm; three of these cities made it into our top 10 smart cities list (two others were runners-up). Each of these cities have statistics worth mentioning. Amsterdam has one bike for every 0.73 people, Copenhagen has legislation requiring all new buildings to have green roofs (this will add 5,000 square meters of vegetation), and only 44% of New Yorkers own a car, compared to 95% of Americans overall.
