Web of the Week Wednesday: Gapminder

Web address:

Mind the Gap!  This phrase in England refers to the 'gap' between the platform and the London Underground rail cars.  To mind the gap is to be cautious not to fall in a hole.  GapMinder helps you avoid the holes and pitfalls of faulty thinking.  The site shows data on a wide variety of topics, mostly related to populations and demographics so you can avoid the 'gaps' in your thinking.  One interesting and insightful item is the CO2 emissions by population ( You can also compare it by Gross National Product and a variety of other factors) This Gap shows what has happend over the last approximately 200 years regarding CO2.

If you want more information about CO2 emissions you can also visit for Climate Science Resources

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
