Our Top Five Security-Themed Infographics


This month on good.is, we are focusing on the topic of security. And not just security from a national defense and privacy standpoint (although you can check out the infographic above from Column Five about how much Americans pay to secure state secrets). But whether examining global food insecurity or how safet we are from natural and environmental disasters, our archive of GOOD infographics explores how we can examine what's secure in our lives.

What's Wrong With Our Food System?

Around the world every night, one in seven people go to bed hungry—that's almost one billion people. People are hungry not because there isn't enough food produced but because our food system is broken. In fact, 80% of the world's hungry are directly involved in food production. We can address this hunger if we support small-scale food producers, tackle climate change, and reduce food waste. Check out our latest infographic to learn about some of the ways that the food system can be fixed to improve the quality of life for millions.

Which ones are responsible for the largest share of toxic emissions from the electric sector? And how do they threaten the health of our families and children?

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,00 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
