The Carbon Clock is a public installation that uses state-of-the-art climate data to show the ever present urgency of climate change, beginning with a Countdown to 2 Degrees clock and companion website (http://countdown2degrees.com/) where people can visualize in real time the link between global greenhouse gas emissions, increasing temperatures, and the time remaining to 2 degrees of global warming.
