Breathing Earth: Visualizing Our Carbon Footprint

Breathing Earth: Visualizing Our Carbon Footprint

An interactive real-time web simulation visualizes humankind's environmental impact.

Claudia Cukrov

Breathing Earth is an interactive real-time web simulation of humankind’s environmental impact.  Displaying estimated CO2 emissions and population statistics within an easy to use web interface, when prompted by a mouse cursor, specific country information is displayed, offering detailed birth / death and carbon emission statistics.  Countries flash red when they emit over one-thousand tonnes of carbon-dioxide.

Sourcing their information from the CIA World Factbook and United Nations Statistics Division, the Breathing Earth simulation is an innovative big-picture education tool on our global carbon footprint and environmental impact.
