The graph provided is GDP per capita versus infant mortality, which is misleading.
The rate of power consumption appears to correlate just as well as GHG emissions (if not better). What really needs to change is an unsustainable rate of consumption. If anyone plays around with the site, what's most concerning (for me) is the giant circles for India and China climbing along the consumption curves over time (throw up a GHG versus electrical consumption (both on log scales) and move the slider around on the year). The current level of consumption isn't working and it's not going to be any better if everyone wants to waste as much power as Canadians do.
