Love the use of Infographics to pull band popularity data.

When I woke up this morning and went outside, all I could think of was global warming. Look, I have lived in New England for 38 years and I have never seen a hurricane travel this far up the coast and cause this much devastation. Life throws you signs and it is up to us to pay attention to them. Last night, mother nature threw us a sign, and has been for awhile now (see Katrina and drought). I believe it is time to take global warming seriously and begin to take measures to reduce each person’s carbon footprint.
The next question is, what can I do? Well it starts with making sure that our elected officials are thinking intelligently about not just our economy, but our planet. Without a clean and healthy planet, there will be no economy. So it got me thinking about our presidential candidates. I already know Obama’s stance, so what about Mitt? Here is what I learned about Mitt Romney:
The bottom line is this, Social Media is a tool that can be used to responsibly report facts. Mitt Romney is showing here he will say anything to get elected and really doesn’t care about global warming or believe it exists. So with that, does Global Warming exist? Check this out:
So I ask the question to Mitt Romney, what are you going to do about the fact that our planet is warming, other then drill for more oil in North America? You have 7 days to answer the question the gentleman asked you in the second video above.
This is a great example of how Infographics can be used to explain something in layman’s terms. Here, inflation is explained by comparing the cost of a family vacation in 1960 compared to today. Check it out!
If you aren’t utilizing infographics and are in business, you are missing out. You can make many friends by creating valuable Infographics for your fans/customers, partners and even your staff.
I am an Analytics junkie! Love it actually…to the point where I generally tend to let it dictate my life. So it would stand to reason I decided to start thinking about who I will vote for in the fall. I sifted through data and came to the conclusion that Obama is doing a bang up job, contrary to what Mitt Romney has been saying.
Have a look!
The DOW Jones – 3 years (widely considered the pulse of the country’s economic situation)
That is alot of green! Seems like an awful lot of positive…no?
Unemployment – 2 Years
In the last 2 years it has dropped from 16 million to 12 million, a 25% drop in unemployment.
The total reserves have risen 30% at last report.
Import of US Goods (to other countries)
US Auto Manufacturing
Back in January, Japan trailed America Auto Sales for the first time in 14 years.
Also, he fulfilled his promise to leave Iraq and issued the order to take down Osama Bin Laden. All in all, it has been a success considering the mess he was handed in 2008 and a useless House the last 2 years.
Is there work to do? Yes! He needs to lower the National debt, continue to fix the housing crisis, continue to lower the unemployment. But proof is in the data. If voters pay close attention they will see that our country is on the right path. Data doesn’t lie! Calling a spade a spade!
