Welcome to Breathing Earth. This real-time simulation displays the CO2 emissions of every country in the world, as well as their birth and death rates.
Please remember that this real time simulation is just that: a simulation. Although the CO2 emission, birth rate and death rate data used in Breathing Earth comes from reputable sources, data that measures things on such a massive scale can never be 100% accurate.
Please note however that the CO2 emission levels shown here are much more likely to be too low than they are to be too high.

UN Human Development Index http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UN_Human_Development_Index The UN Human Development Index is a quantitative index of development which some use as a proxy to define Third World.
The UN Human Development Index (HDI) is a comparative measure of poverty, literacy, education, life expectancy, childbirth, and other factors for countries worldwide. It is a standard means of measuring well-being, especially child welfare.
The index was developed in 1990 by the Pakistani economist Mahbub ul Haq, and has been used since 1993 by the United Nations Development Programme in its annual Human Development Report.
Third World : at Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_world Third World : at Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia
Terms such as Global South, less wealthy nations, developing countries, least developed countries and the Majority World have become more popular in many circles, due to the derogatory and out of date connotations of describing a 'Third' world. Development workers also call them the two-thirds world (because two-thirds of the world is underdeveloped) and The South.
The term Third World is also disliked as it may imply the false notion that those countries are not a part of the global economic system.

If you want to induce mental meltdown, the statistics of the worsening global water crisis are a surefire winner.
