Some Good Graphics

The good folks at Masters in Environmental Science have collated some very good infographics on climate change that are worth your seeing.  Here is one on the “carbon footprint” that shows how different countries are performing both on a gross output basis and per capita.  (All credit here to Miller-McCune, the excellent media outlet, and Stanford Kay Studios.)  It reminds me of another terrific graphic information resource from the Financial Times on carbon emissions past and projected.

I like this multimedia presentation too, from a Basque information service.  We were in Basque Country this summer on vacation.  Beautiful place with wonderful people.  Who knew that they did such great graphics on climate change?
