This editable environmental data chart contrasts population, consumption, and carbon dioxide emissions for the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Africa, China, India, and Asia (minus India and China). Related data including income, poverty, contraceptive use, contrasted government expenditures (education, healthcare, military), conserved natural habitat, and more are included. This data set, and clarifications for its use, are ready to use in lesson plans, debates, classroom activities, papers, or simulations. They can be effectively used in social studies, Environmental Science, Language Arts, or math classes. The data is pertinent to a wide variety of controversial subjects including environmental responsibility, wealth distribution, global poverty, social responsibility, global justice, capitalism, global economics, climate change, global warming, overpopulation, consumerism, conspicuous consumption, international policy, international relations, etc. You get the point; it's versatile!
