Cool Earth Infographic

June 15th, 2010 by Dave · No Comments

This great infographic from Our Amazing Planet ties together a lot of interesting facts. Scrolling town from the upper edge of the atmosphere to the bottom of the deepest ocean trench, a lot of things are put in perspective. For example, I found it amazing to see just how close to an airliner the highest flying birds go, or how tiny manmade buildings really are.

It is also interesting to follow the path of the leaking Deepwater Horizon oil rig from the ocean’s surface, down to the seafloor, and beyond. This infographic could make a great discussion or writing prompt, and could be used to introduce or review a wide range of issues, including the oil spill.

Thanks Larry
