Breathing Earth

| 2 Comments

Breathing Earth is an intriguing visual representation of the effect each country has on climate change.  You move the cursor to a nation on a world map, and then see the number of CO2 emissions that country makes each minute.  It also shows total population, and the birth and death rate of each country.

With guidance, English Language Learners could certainly use this website to make some comparisons between countries and draw conclusions from the data.

I’ve placed the link both on my World History page and my Geography and United States page.  It’s with a group of other links related to global warming near the bottom of each page.

    I definitely agree with your adjectives…
