Carbon Quilt — Want A More Visceral Sense Of The Scale Of Greenhouse Gas Emissions? Take A Look Here

May 22nd, 2014 by  

Not exactly clear what the numbers and figures put out there by various scientific bodies actually mean? Want to get a more visceral sense of the scale of modern anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions?

Then I recommend that you take a look at the Carbon Quilt — a visualization resource created for just such a purpose.

As an interesting example of what the site offers, take a look at the image/tweet below — depicting London’s CO2 emissions next to a number of well-known landmarks.

If you’re curious at all, I think checking out the Carbon Quilt is worth the time. 🙂
