Bill Clinton, through his "William J. Clinton Foundation", has discovered the principle of mixing video with (well, very subtle forms of...) infographically presented statistical information. President Clinton describes a bold new project that will set the global standard for communities striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to below zero. In particular, the Clinton Climate Initiative proposes a model for sustainable urban growth with projects in 10 countries on six continents.

Watch the video below. The video was created by superfad, and the art direction and design was accomplished by Tesia Alexandra.

Thnkx Doron!



one does wonder, though, why they only get these green epiphanies once they're *out* of office.

(also: I'm eagerly awaiting george w. bushes academy-award winning infographically-enhanced documentary about religious fundamentalism, featuring a discussion between dawkins and pope benedict)

While I agree with making changes for sustaining urban growth, I don't think it's fair to say that 2% of the land mass is creating 75% of greenhouse gases. Isn't it rather that over 50% of people are creating 75% of greenhouse gases?

Or is this a "guns don't kill people; people kill people" argument?

Text is a bit yawn making though. I wondered too about the numbers. Slick but desiged to reassure that they are numbers rather than to deliver numbers that can be used? Perhaps just too early on a Saturday for me. Thanks for flagging it up.

These population figures are blowing my mind! Shanghai has a population of 13,922 million. Since 1,000 million equals 1 billion, the population of Shanghai is more than twice as much as the population of the whole earth!

I think the comma is a decimal point. Graphic designers take a few liberties sometimes.


So 13 million for Shanghai (which I understand is actually a conservative figure!)
