    Every legislator, at every level, needs to spend a lot of quality time with those charts. I am ashamed of American lawmakers' moral cowardice.

                  • If you superimpose the Mediterranean Sea (and the Black Sea) over a map of the United States you get a real sense of how big each of them is.

                      • I'm embroiled at the moment in "Prisoners of Geography" by Tim Marshall; '10 Maps that tell you everything you need to know about global politics' - I can recommend it.

                        • my post on "what reading?" thread on 4/23/16:

                          <<Prisoners Of Geography (10 maps that explain everything about the world) by Tim Marshall.

                          Without a scintilla of hyperbole I think I can say I learned more from this book than any other I've ever read. I suppose it's largely stuff that any geography major might be well acquainted with, but to see how physical features have determined not only the past, but will also be responsible for the future, no matter what man tries to do was really eye-opening.

                          As the Newsweek blurb on the dust jacket says, "shows how geography shapes not just history but destiny."

                          I never really realized before, for example that without a good set of navigable rivers and deep water ports, an area can be really screwed. See South America.>>

                          • This is very good on polio and its effects and its eradication - lots of maps and charts - https://ourworldindata.org/polio/. In general, ourworldindata.org is a tremendous site for information and has lots of maps and charts.

                            • I only had a chance to skim this book before I gave it to over achieving grandson Thomas Lonewolf last Christmas. He was so impressed he uncharacteristically called me to discuss what an informative book it is. I don't know if his copy survived the Houston flood.. reckon I better get to Barnes and Nobel for my own copy.
