If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a chart with a hundred words must be worth a million, right? Our math is fuzzy, but you get our point ...
The image above is just a corner of the gigantic "CO2 World" chart that GOOD magazine posted on its site this week.
Get a link to the whole graph and some of the highlights after the jump."CO2 World" is a gigantic breakdown of how we create carbon dioxide, how much we create, and how the U.S. looks (on a CO2-creation basis) compared to the rest of the world.
It's scary stuff.
Did you know that our homes create 20% of the U.S.' total CO2 emissions? Or that here in the U.S. we create 44,400 pounds of CO2 per year/per person -- while the per person average for the rest of the world is only 9,600 pounds?
Get all the info here. Next time you're at a dinner party and someone tells you that climate change is a myth, you'll be armed with the ammunition to take 'em down on the spot.
