Global warming Information is Beautiful

infoisbeautiful_agwThe Information is Beautiful site is really wonderful; David McCandless presents information, well, beautifully, using graphics with accompanying text. It’s a great way to take complicated, contentious issues and simplify them, making them easier to understand.

This time, he’s taken on global warming, creating what to me looks like a well-balanced presentation, fairly representing the arguments. While this probably won’t change anyone’s minds on its own, it is a handy tool to show some of the arguments.

Tip o’ the ice core to my big sister Marci.
