What Is The Climate Clock?

Climate Clock 1.5c

Point Of No Return

The Most Important Number In The World

Window Of Hope

At the current rate, humanity is
pumping enough Carbon Dioxide into our atmosphere so that in a little more
than 6 years our global temperature
will increase by 1.5 degrees Celsius,
a dangerous "point of no return" according to scientists.

This is the most important number that we, as a species, have ever encountered. Every hour, every minute, every second counts.

The Climate Clock shows our
“window of hope” — our most
critical time window to take bold,
transformative action to protect
our climate for all generations.

Most Important Number In The World

This is the most important number that we,
as a species, have ever encountered.
Every hour, every minute, every second counts.

The Window Of Hope

The Climate Clock shows our “window of hope
— our most critical time window to take bold, transformative action to protect our climate for all generations.

The Climate Clock is a project that was started by a US-based team of passionate people. Their aim is to raise awareness about how much time we have left to save our planet and to show how we can use this number to ignite climate action.

Climate Clock uses scientific data from the IPCC, which shows the time we have left to take decisive action to keep warming under the 1.5°C threshold. If the World warms above 1.5°C, irreversible damage will be done to our planet and we will begin to free-fall down the dark hole of climate breakdown and climate catastrophe.


What Happens If We Do Nothing?

Climate Breakdown

Studies suggest that Thailand is the country sixth most impacted by climate change in the past 20 years.
Last year's historic drought and subsequent severe flooding are reminders of this.
More than 30% of Bangkok is predicted to routinely flood as soon as 2030 as the Gulf of Thailand rises due to melting sea ice. Meanwhile, rice production in the Chao Phraya basin risks falling sharply within the next 15 years due to climate change.*

You Can't Forget It

When we first saw this number in the media, displayed for all to see in New York, we were saddened, disturbed, and scared for the future of humanity. It hit us hard. But once we had seen this number, been shocked and saddened by it, we continue with our day-to-day lives and forgot about the potential impending demise of our planet. This is exactly why this campaign is so impactful. If you live in NYC and see this number every day, you can’t forget it. You can’t not be inspired to take action. We hope the Climate Clock on the BTS will do the same; will be a daily inspiration to take action now.

Climate Change

Many big changes that need to happen in order to reverse climate change are in the hands of a very small number of big players, but we can also make a huge difference as individuals.
