UK Imports & Exports

The Guardian published a very informative interactive visualisation on UK exports and imports to and from Europe, with the hope of preparing people for changes in their post no-deal Brexit shop. The site highlights some top level items but also allows you to select any category of good to see that import and export flow. Turns out the UK exports £27m worth of potatoes to Ireland.

The Guardian have released a flight carbon calculator, allowing you to select your starting and destination airports to see how much kilograms of CO2 emmissions are released per passenger on that return flight. it also shows you how many countries emit less CO2 per person per year compared to that flight. Aviation is responsible for 2% of global emissions and are set to at least double by 2050 :-(
