Author: Florence Nightingale; Lynn McDonald
Publisher: Waterloo, Ont. : Wilfrid Laurier University Press, ©2010.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Biography : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This chart adapts Nightingale's pioneering area charts (comparing preventible with non-preventible deaths) to a new issue: climate change. The areas of the wedges and the numbers beside them represent carbon dioxide emissions plus equivalent measures for the other greenhouse gases, measured in megatonnes. The angle represents the total population, the radius per capita emissions.
