The Obama Energy Agenda, Illustrated
BY Nancy Scola | Friday, May 6 2011
The Obama White House continues its experimentation in the political infographic space with the one above, on Obama's approach on energy production and gas prices, released this afternoon in conjunction with the president's speech that he delivered at an Indianapolis automobile transmission plant earlier today.
Actually, "the one above" isn't quite right. What's about is only, hmm, about a third of the thing. This is a big chunk of color. At about 600 by 1500 pixels, the gas price visualization isn't all that blog-friendly. (A mini version of the full infographic is embedded to the right.) But the White House has a few other suggestions for what to do with their art. "Check it out below, or download it, print it, send it to your family," reads a post on the WhiteHouse.gov blog by White House online programs director Jesse Lee, "or hang it on your wall to add a splash of color."
