Breathingearth.net; track population & CO2 data

Visit breathingearth.net

There you will find an interactive map showing a simulation of world and country population figures, as well as CO2 emissions. The population figures adjust all the time for birth and death rates for each country, adjusting the global population figure as well.

The difference between countries is of course quite marked, depending on level of social and economic development. Population data comes from the CIA World Factbook and the CO2 emissions from the United Nations Statistics Division (last data available 2004).

    Hi Matt,

    Cool site. Of course, most every stat they track, except population, is irrelevant. Also, even if you are still a Global Warming Fanatic, you should at least look at those emission figures in light of what is produced by their production. Really, while we may still be fighting China for the CO2 emission championship, we continue to hold the title in goods and services produced, some where around 25% of world production. Which we do with 4.6% of the world’s population, living on 6.5% of the world’s land area. So, if you look at things in a broader light, we’re doing better in an environmental sense that the rest of you. so get back to me when y’all catch up.
