Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! While this holiday is mostly spent by barbecuing, traveling, and spending time with friends and family, let’s not forget that the true spirit of the holiday is to commemorate our fallen heroes.
People and organizations across the internet have created their own data visualizations that show different perspectives of Memorial Day, from CO2 emissions from traveling to war casualties. There are many ways to visualize the same type of data; here are some interesting visualizations that I found:
GE created this visualization to compare the amount of CO2 emissions on Memorial Day from driving standard, hybrid, or electric cars. Looks like we can reduce CO2 emissions by 2.9 million metric tons if we all switched from standard cars to electric cars!
