Energy infographic

I like info-graphics. Here is one from Good magazine about energy:

I think what I like most about infographics is that they leave me asking more as well. For instance, I wonder how representative their assumed hydroelectric production rate is? I wonder how much carbon dioxide is released by  714 pounds of coal burned. I also wonder why we can’t all agree to use the SI …178lb = 80.7kg; 143lb = 60.86kg; 0.035lb is less than 200g.

I hope you find this thought provoking and it makes you go and find out more numbers on this topic.

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
