Associated Press Launches Interactive Map of Climate Emissions & Pledges

The Associated Press has put out an interesting interactive mapof climate change data, including the emission trends from countries in the northern hemisphere, graphs of the various indicators of global warming such as glacier melts and global temperatures, and the pledges that different countries have made when it comes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It's in this map that the United States really stands out. But not in a good way.

Sigh.

While a bit simplistic, it's a handy map for quickly scrolling through and getting an update on how different countries rank among one another. There's also a cool animation about how the greenhouse effect works, which is great for a refresher course, or showing someone who doesn't quite understand how it all works.
