Good infographic from the New Scientist showing how many years we have left of our key natural resources. Essentially these are basic bar and pie charts, but dressed up to make the overall graphic more compelling. The message is still clear though, and the author gets his point across very strongly.
This comes from a 2007 article in the New Scientist called "Earth's Natural Wealth: an Audit" that include two more infographics as well. The first is a map of where in the world are these natural resources are.
The next is a bubble graphic showing the scale of how much of each resource an average American will consume during their lifetime.
The Source listed on the first infographic: Armin Reller, University of Augsburg, Tom Graedel, Yale University

Great interactive infographic website from GE for their Plug Into The Smart Grid ad campaign. Beautiful graphics, fast, clean interface and all-around good job. The viewer can change the setting, and see the infographic results change in response.
My son loves the Augmented Reality part! Not really infographic, but fun.
Dan Meth did a great job creating his own personal Trilogy Meter showing his personal enjoyment of movies released as a trilogy. This shows that Dan never likes the 3rd movie as much, so he should just stop spending the money.
Although this is based on Dan's personal ratings for each movie, there's no reason why something like this couldn't be done with more official data like critic ratings or box office dollars.
Thanks for the link Jesper and Daniel!
Check out Planets, an interactive solar system visualizer. It lets you change the focal point so you can see the planetary motions as if you were standing on any of the planets. A great way to understand retrograde motion.
Thanks Paul, for the link.
Infographic from the NY Times (I know, ironic isn't it?) that shows the drop in circulation of major newspapers across the U.S.
Heavy debt has dragged several newspaper companies into bankruptcy. The industry’s dwindling revenues have forced some money-losing papers to close, and papers that are for sale are having trouble finding buyers. Experts say that before long, a major American city could be left without a daily paper. (Related Article)Found on Twitter from @edial
