Breathing Earth

Breathing Earth is a very nice dynamic visualization of population change and carbon dioxide production on a country-by-country basis. A country’s birth and death rate is shown using real time events, taking advantage of the fact that in fast growing countries like India and China, there is a birth every one-to-two seconds. The dynamic nature of these events makes the overall visualization interesting to watch over time, and it illustrates one way to represent multiple attributes of a country (birth rate, death rate, CO2 production) simultaneously.
