Which nations are at the greatest vulnerability to the negative impacts of climate change? According to research, not the nations who caused it. MHA@GW, the online master of health administration from the Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University shared with us this data visualization to illustrate the comparison between the nations most susceptible to climate change and the nations that emit the highest levels of CO2. They compared data from the Notre Dame Global Adaptation Index (ND-GAIN) to data from the Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC).
