The HDI is a composite that includes economic measures (essentially GPD per capita), so we should expect a correlation between the two.

I don’t understand how to read Figure 1. What are the units of each axis?

Also, I’m unclear on how you go from a very specific, process level measure of energy use to an economy-wide measure? What’s the connection?
