we are watt piggies
I found this very fun IBM graphics generating site while reviewing a story for OW2.0 that's coming up in a few weeks.
Calculating carbon footprints in CO2 has frankly always been a bit abstract for my visual-learner brain so I like charts. But now I've also discovered that I can more easily handle thinking about per capita energy consumption in watts (try calculating yours!). And obviously less watts means less carbon emissions too so it's not like focussing on one excludes the other, n'est pas?
