The Carbon Map

The Carbon Map
Understanding carbon emissions and the impacts of climate change can be extremely difficult to comprehend sometimes. There are many different ways to represent carbon emissions - current, historical, per person, per country, etc.

We read about the impacts of climate change but it's really hard to visualise it on a global basis. Where are the large populations and how much are they likely to be affected by a changing climate?

The Carbon Map is a fantastic interactive tool where you can overlay different aspects such as population growth, CO2 per person and GDP with area, climate impacts and historical carbon emissions. This is highly recommended to increase understanding of climate change and its effects.
