An interesting development is in the combinations of data available, and the implications of that. I have found data about alternative and nuclear energy lumped together, and also about communicable diseases and nutrition conditions. While I understand there is some logic to these groupings, it also skews the data. As far as I am concerned, nuclear energy should not be considered “ethical” or environmentally sustainable, it produces huge amounts of impossible to dispose of waste, and has lasting consequences for the environment and for human health. The only connecting factor here is that the fuel types are not fossil fuels, but unless we can see the breakdown within that data, we can’t really get a clear picture of ethical, environmentally sustainable energy use.

In other news, I created a gorgeous map using Tableau, but it won’t let me save it. Typical.
