Green Right Now
This number shows Earth’s collective 3 trillion-plus metric tons of combined greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
You’ll notice that it is a BIG number. And it’s already outdated. This picture was captured yesterday. Look at the counter today on the web, and the number will be bigger.
The volume of greenhouse gases is constantly ticking upward. Much faster than a watch. Steady as an oil derrick. As ominously as a time bomb.
