That’s how fast the carbon clock is ticking

The MCC carbon clock demonstrates just how much carbon can be released into the atmosphere if global warming is to be capped at 1.5°C, or 2°C. By selecting a choice of temperature targets and estimates, you can see how much time remains in each scenario.


Betting on negative emissions

New technologies are hoped to reduce the CO2 debt. They aim to remove already existing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere—but also entail serious risks.
