This Breathing Earth thing really had me mesmerised.

It basically shows you in real time a map of the world, detailing every birth and death that happens in seconds, as well as the amount of CO2 emissions we produce.

Fascinating stuff. Rather scary too.

And while you're at it, try the Ecological Footprint Quiz. It actually shows you the footprint you leave on the planet and how many earths would be required in order to sustain your kind of lifestyle if everybody else lived like you!

My results were pretty sobering...
