In this powerful geospatial visualization, you can view the CO2 (Carbon dioxide) emissions per capita for each country around the world for 2004. By using polygons to present their data, the World Resources Institute (Earth Trends) provide an easy to understand and accessible form of data regarding one of the "hot" topics in the news. It could be interesting to see this same KML presentation in 20 years time to see what countries are truly playing their part to reduce emissions.
