Climate Change Infographics: Sea Level Rise

Climate Change Infographics: Sea Level Rise | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it
Infographics have been popping up everywhere lately. A combination of image and information (often as graphs and charts), they are a great way to present.

Over coming weeks I hope to feature infographics regarding climate change, nature and health, along with some background information about their design and use.

The first one, showing the predicted effects of sea level rise on the world’s major cities, comes from Keeping our head above water | GDS Publishing.

Visualizing the Global Carbon Footprint

Visualizing the Global Carbon Footprint | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it

One of the key things I reinforce in conversations about globalization is that the advantages are unevenly distributed and the negative externalities to the system are also unevenly distributed.  This clever infographic highlights both rather effectively.

Really surprised at a couple things:
1. Brazil's relative tinyness in comparison with the U.S. Guess I've always just heard bad things about Brazil in regards to deforestation and the like.
2. Just how much a formerly agricultural nation (China) has exploded. Something really needs to be done about the environmental havoc they are wreaking (not to be a total ethnocentrist or anything).

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.
