"Carbon footprint per capita" by country.

Look at the Canadians! They are actually a dirty lot! The Afrikaans saying comes to mind: "Blink van bo maar stink van onder"..
That's actually not quite accurate Fransw.. The Canadians are a clean lot, but the Americans have been secretly exporting their American carbon emissions across the border at night to get their own statistics down. :wink:
There are three simple rules for making a perfect landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

OK, I think its fair to give her credit for half of Oracle's revenue. That's still about $18billion. Good enough for my list.. :)

....ok not really info graphics but interesting news if it is true, got it from FB?

"" Mike Barnes: Some interesting facts I picked up the other day – SAA (South African Airways) buys 1.5 million bottles of VALPRE water a year. The wholesale price of these bottles is R2.75 each. SAA, however, does not buy directly from the producer. It buys them from an "empowerment company" set up by ANC cadres and pays R 17.20 a bottle, that's over R21 million more than they ought to be paying. If they bought it retail they'd be paying R15 million less. The fuel bill is inflated by 30%, R1.3 billion, because the fuel is also not bought directly but bought through a Black empowerment company linked to the ANC.

I went to an Allan Gray Presentation yesterday and Andrew Lapping (excellent speaker) gave some fascinating information on Eskom.
The background to this was the mini-budget and how Govt spending has increased dramatically but unfortunately has been used in a very unproductive manner.
He mentioned that we all hear about how the SOE’s are being run badly but to give more perspective on this, he drilled down into Eskom, the biggest SOE.
From 2003 to 2017, the electricity output has remained flat (ie no increase at all). Now if a company’s production remained flat over a 14 year period, one would assume that there had been a reduction in costs and that the company had become more efficient and productive with fewer resources.
Now, lets look at Eskom . . . .
In 2003, they had 32,000 employees
In 2017, they have 47,000 employees (a 50% increase in employment with zero increase in productivity).
One could think that maybe they employed many low paid employees to help the unemployment situation.
Not so . . . .
In 2003, the 32,000 employees had an average annual salary of R200,000
In 2017, the 47,000 employees have an average annual salary of R825,000 (if they had inflationary increases, it would have been an average income of R400,000)
So, in summary, over the 14 year period, their production remained flat, their employment increased by 50% and their average annual salary quadrupled.
Could your company survive if it did anything like Eskom ? ""

What's more interesting is that Jews make up 2% of the USA population and have won 20% of the Nobel Prizes that have gone to the USA.

It would also be useful if those figures had been related to the size of the population. USA is 5 or 6 X bigger than the UK but has only 3 x the number of Nobel Prizes.

CAVEAT: all figures off the top of my head and happy to be corrected by anyone who's prepared to actually research them and come up with something more accurate.

Not very artistic but an infographic none the less. This is the amount of monthly unique visitors we receive per month.
