GoogleEarth visualization of oil consumption

January 3, 2008

A friend clued me in to this cool GoogleEarth visualization that shows oil consumption by country. The screenshots below show total consumption (height is proportional to barrels of oil per day).

You can get the file at the GoogleEarth Blog here.

    Is there a per-capita version? ’cause with this we could make Europe look bad simply by combining all the member countries into one EU block.
