The Changing Carbon Map: How We Revised Our Interactive Look at Global Footprints
At climate change talks in Warsaw this week, just as in the previous 18 annual rounds of negotiations, delegates never were able to overcome the divide between rich and poor nations.
We map the starkly different views of the climate crisis that have led to stalemate in our newly revised interactive, Four Ways to Look at Global Carbon Footrpints. (See related “Quiz: What You Don’t Know About Climate Change Science.”)
