I met a prospective grad student who worked at the Environmental Footprint Network. Turns out they have some new kinds of environment data… scoring countries based on consumption relative to biocapacity:
There are a few surprises… for instance, North Africa looks worse than I would’ve expected. I guess they don’t have a lot of biocapacity. I’m not sure country is the best unit of analysis for this type of measure — at least for my purposes. For instance, Alaska’s score would change a lot if it were part of Canada, rather than part of the US. But, it is still interesting.
