Financial and Energy Widgets

Washington's Blog is pleased to announce some useful widgets, created by - and co-branded with - OilPrice:

Post 'em on your website, share 'em, spread 'em around.

Download the widgets below.

Notes: The data comes from official sources. If you like official sources, you should trust the data. If you are skeptical of official sources, act accordingly.

As for the carbon counter, global warming activists will find it interesting and global warming skeptics will find it a waste of space (or an indication of available food for plants and forests). I am not pushing one view or the other, but seeking common ground. Moreover, given that there is some evidence for the role of cosmic radiation in cloud formation, and the inverse relationship between the solar wind and the amount of cosmic radiation hitting the Earth's atmosphere, a cosmic radiation or solar win widget would be interesting as well (if anyone knows where to get real-time data for cosmic radiation or solar output, I'll create a widget).

  1. Tres cool but am I missing something? The figure for 'alternative energy production 2011' seems to be the same as 'world energy consumption 2011'.

  2. Should add the students debt to the us debt widget, because it's bigger than the credit debt.

  3. Thank you, I plan to use them.

    Here is a return gift for a laugh.


→ Thank you for contributing to the conversation by commenting. We try to read all of the comments (but don't always have the time).

→ If you write a long comment, please use paragraph breaks. Otherwise, no one will read it. Many people still won't read it, so shorter is usually better (but it's your choice).

→ The following types of comments will be deleted if we happen to see them:

-- Comments that criticize any class of people as a whole, especially when based on an attribute they don't have control over

-- Comments that explicitly call for violence

→ Because we do not read all of the comments, I am not responsible for any unlawful or distasteful comments.
