Earth’s Data Speaks - Olivia Martin, USAFacts.org
“Really use the information…We hope that it helps you develop opinions… (that help you) vote, contact your representatives…We really hope that this report among others will empower…people and as voters to, to use the data, to hold their government accountable.”
Olivia Martin, USAFacts on Electric Ladies Podcast
What is the Earth saying this year? We see lots of reports from various sources, but the ones that government officials and business leaders tend to rely on are from government sources, whether those sources are local, state or federal. What does the information say about the State of Earth in 2021 and where does that data come from?
Listen to this fascinating interview with data scientist Olivia Martin of USAFacts on Electric Ladies, the podcast formerly known as Green Connections Radio, with host Joan Michelson. USAFacts is a nonprofit founded by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to collect and analyze data from all government sources, no matter how granular they need to get. And, they make sense of it for the rest of us, translating what the Earth’s data is telling us, so we can use it.
“Whenever you're a woman in a field that is typically not dominated by women, which is very true in the data space …I think having confidence in yourself and having confidence in the research you've done and your own preparation is important.”
