[DM] “Hans Rosling, in memoriam”

At Demography Matters, I have a brief note noting the sad death earlier this week of Gapminder’s Hans Rosling. 68 was too young for anyone, certainly too young for someone so dedicated to helping the world know itself through the truth. Scott Gilmore’s article in MacLean’s is one I recommend.

What can I say but that I wish that his vision be continued?

  1. Another great Rosling TED Talk:

    From the country in Europe with the cleanest electricity by far. Because 40 percent of Sweden’s electricity is made in nuclear plants, its electricity is cheap too.

    In Germany:

    Bias + intuition = anti-nukery = increased CO2 emissions from electricity generation AND expensive electricity

    Germany needs to start respecting data.
