Making Data tell a Story

I don’t think anybody does it better than Hans Rosling. In the following video he helps to explain population growth, child mortality, and fossil fuel usage based upon wealth. I love how he uses toy blocks and chips to help visualize his point.

    Great, simple and compelling (just over 3mins) and if you like this, have a look at Rosling’s TED talks.

    i like how he has to take more CO2 chips out of his pocket…. and then part about the old western world ending up as the foundation

      Ha, I did find the extra chips part funny as well. Thank for commenting.
