This is the carbon clock
Grounded in science
The original carbon clock was created by the MCC (Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change) using IPCC data that shows how much CO2 can be released into the atmosphere before we reach the critical tipping points of 1.5°C and 2°C.
To see what our clock is synchronised to click ‘1.5°C scenario’ in the top right of the MCC clock.
The carbon clock is a great tool to inspire immediate climate action by highlighting the urgency of the climate crisis. We have a seven year opportunity to make a difference. To make sure this clock does not reach zero.
An Opportunity to Amplify
This clock should serve as a rallying cry for all organisations dedicated to addressing the climate crisis.
We want to help communicators use this evocative tool to encourage climate action through the creation of a clock that shows Australia’s emissions and our own shareable widget.
