There are lots of infographics that don't argue any point but simply
consolidate a lot of information. For example:

The example cited by the original poster is not a random collection of facts graphically displayed, but a selection of facts intended to support a proposition: to wit, that the growth of human population is straining the planetâs resources and ecosystem. I would not say argument is the sole purpose of an infographic, but it is at least the common purpose.
