Beauty in Flowchart Form


The phrase “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” is perhaps shown through my appreciation and, yes, affection for this flowchart. Literally hours can be spent getting lost in the data contained within this chart, yet in just minutes one can capture the overall picture – for example, solar power supplies very little of our electricity (at least directly), petroleum is largely used for transportation – though some goes to industrial processes.

*Sigh*

Beautiful.

For a larger version of this flowchart, see the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory website here.

    That is always one of my favorites. It is interesting to see how the flowchart changes from year to year.

    Agreed – I re-discovered it today. No less beautiful the second, third, or fourth time that you see it. And always great to illustrate trends and facts regarding our energy landscape…
