Where have all the flowers gone?
When generations to come ask the question “who cut down all the trees”, history teachers of the future will have a powerful tool to help compose a decent reply. The Trase Yearbook is a mighty effort to map global supply chains as they relate to deforestation, with data explorers for major commodity producers and consumers hidden behind a simple spinning globe. It goes from simple overview to complex trade stats pretty quickly, and it would appear at first glance to be light on data about African exports (but not imports), but if you want to know what’s happening to the Amazon or the orangutans, this is a place to start.
