Breathing Earth = Information Visualization

The Breathing Earth website by David Bleja is a great example of how the Web is changing the way we interact with and perceive information.

"This real-time simulation displays the CO2 emissions of every country in the world, as well as their birth and death rates. "

It's kind of fascinating to step back and take a global view of such things. Don't be afraid to move your cursor over the map to see what happens.

And be sure to scroll down to find out more about the data and where it comes from, the environment and climate change as well as links to other resources.
