The animation above does a great job showing both how fast and slow light speed really is. The speed of light is theoretically the fastest speed you can travel in the universe. At 299,792,458 m/s (186,282 miles per second) it is really, really fast. However, given how vast space is, it’s also really, really slow.
The animation above shows annual greenhouse gas emissions by country between 1850 and 2016. And spoiler the US is consistently the largest emitter of greenhouse gases until the last decade when China dramatically overtakes it.
The data comes from the The PRIMAP-hist national historical emissions time series. You can also watch Robert Rohde’s original video below:
