These two graphs plot HDI (Human Development Index), a measure of life quality, with energy consumption and CO2 emissions of 128 countries. Countries with higher energy consumption and the related CO2 emissions have a higher HDI. These graphs can be used to discuss energy inequality and the sustainability of current energy consumption with decreasing fossil fuels.
