Clock designed at Christ the Redeemer draws attention to environmental awareness

The climate clock, responsible for marking how long there will still be temperatures at minimum levels of safety for humanity, arrived in Brazil this Saturday (22), and started to be projected on Christ the Redeemer, in Rio de Janeiro.

For the first time in history, the deadline set by the clock will be less than six years, giving a period of 5 years and 364 days for substantial cuts in greenhouse gas emissions to be adopted in order to move away from the worst possible climate situations.

“This is the critical threshold, the point beyond which the consequences will be catastrophic for nature and humanity,” revealed Natalie Unterstell, president of the Talanoa institute, focused on regulation and climate risks, which leads the campaign in Brazil.



In addition, she also explained that the “Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change” (Or IPCC, in its acronym in English), related to the United Nations (UN), estimated that the atmosphere began to absorb about 400 gigatons of CO₂.

“With CO₂ emissions estimated at 42.2 Gt per year – equivalent to 1,337 tonnes per second – at a constant level, this ‘carbon budget’ will be depleted in less than six years from now. The budget to stay below the 2°C threshold of 1,150 Gt would be exhausted in about 23 years and 9 months.”he declared.



Other purposes for the coming weather clock:

In addition to marking an environmental deadline, the clock also seeks to develop solutions to combat climate emergencies that can be applied in Brazilian territory, such as: investment in electric public transport, basic sanitation for the general population and zero rate of forest deforestation.

Places in the world that have already received the watch:

After being displayed on a 24-meter projection in New York’s Union Square, the watch traveled to different parts of the world, such as London, Rome, Seoul, Tokyo and Beijing.

In the Fluminense capital, the clock will be on between the hours of 5 pm to 9 pm.
