Monday Map

From the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project, this map shows the average annual cloud cover around the world. I thought it would be interesting to combine this data along with insolation data to look for any population skin color anomalies. Unfortunately, I don't have time to look at this very closely right now, although I'll just point out that Jared Diamond frequently mentions the example of dark skin color in Papua New Guinea despite much cloud cover...
