Project: Design an Infographic About Energy

Help design an infographic about energy, and your work could be featured in the Energy Issue.

Our next issue is the Energy Issue. While we're working on making it, we want to see what you can do with visualizing ideas about energy and how we use it.

Create an infographic about energy.

For this contest, we're looking for infographics about energy: how much we use, what kind we use, what we can do to use less.

Please email us your submissions to projects[at]goodinc[dot]com with the subject "November 2010 Transparency Contest." It should be a JPG, exported at a high enough resolution that it can be printed at 300 dpi. We’ll take submissions now through December 1. As with our last contest, we'll be giving out three awards: best use and presentation of information, best aesthetics, and best overall infographic. The winning entries will be selected by GOOD and winners will be announced the week of December 6, featured on our homepage, and printed in the next issue of GOOD. We’ll send GOOD T-shirts and a free subscription (or gift subscription) to the winners.


The U.S. Energy Information Administration has a wealth of information on literally every aspect of the energy situation in this country.

The International Energy Agency also has great information, for the entire world, including the recently released World Energy Outlook report.

This chart is also a handy, simple way of looking at it.

This is everything we've ever written about energy.

It all started when a caller asked why he felt comfortable using the term "ki*e" while discussing bigotry while using the term "N-word" when referring to a slur against African-Americans.

Prager used the discussion to make the point that people are allowed to use anti-Jewish slurs but cannot use the N-word because "the Left" controls American culture.

According to the FBI, the number of sexual assaults reported during commercial flights have increased "at an alarming rate."

And flight attendants have it worse. A survey conducted by the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA found that 70% of flight attendants had been sexually harassed while on the job, while only 7% reported it.
