A fundamental step towards averting climate catastrophe is the creation of a worldwide awareness of the looming threat of a final, life-destroying reversal of the world’s climate.
The cross-national and cross-cultural climate clock, called »ClimateMeter«, provides an urgently needed communication tool for raising awareness. It combines the dimension of personal perception with the climate information of international science. The realization of the Climatemeter sends a worldwide impulse to immediately act responsibly.
All display parameters of the Climate Meter are adjusted according to the latest data from five international scientific institutes, and alternately displayed.
A buoy with a webcam transmits the current state of global warming live to the website »Climatemeter.net«. There, it can be viewed, linked and quoted anywhere in the world.
ClimateMeter is conceived as a large-scale work and is equally effective in smaller formats. Its technical feasibility has been tested and confirmed.
The ClimateMeter is aimed at the global community. Anyone who registers there signals their willingness to act responsibly and in a climate-friendly manner.
