Graphic: 14 Carbon Hotspots

There’s an excellent new interactive graphic on the site Inside Climate News. The graphic examines 14 carbon “hot spots,” i.e. sites with very large reserves of coal, oil and natural gas, and the implications for the Earth’s carbon budget vis-a-vis our goal of limiting temperatures to below critical thresholds. The graphic facilitates looking at each site, the threat they pose to breaking the carbon budget, and the key decision-makers in each context.
