It takes a village


Even as more U.S. appliances meet Energy Star standards, America is still an energy glutton compared with much of the world. That router that you never bother to turn off, for instance, uses more kilowatt-hours per year than does the average Tanzanian. Inspired by the Center for Global Development, we contrast the annual energy consumption of various appliances with the per capita usage of five energy-poor nations. –Paul Rauber
