Watch How Carbon Emissions Have Evolved Over 150 Years
This interactive visualization, originally posted by the World Resources Institute, is the most shocking CO2 comparison I’ve come across. I’ve known that the United States has been a leader in carbon emissions for some time, but watching our country lead the pack for the last 150 years is not only frightening, but completely discouraging.
Those threatening carbon bubbles shooting into the atmosphere like Nerf balls are enough to grab anyone’s attention (even Wyoming Governor Matt Mead). Climate change is a serious threat to our environment, and it’s getting worse. If you’re doubtful after viewing this, well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit.
