Solution description

We chop down the huge bulk of information about climate change into small, digestible pieces in our interactive graphs. People can get a good picture of climate change facts on the go, as well as about how their local behavior can contribute to the big solution. With weekly changing graphs provided by Touch Climate, people can experience how rising global CO2 levels have been connected to days of extreme heat per year in their hometown over the last 70 years, calculate the CO2 emissions they produced on their way to the shopping center, or see what the different scenarios set out by the International Panel of Climate Change (IPCC) actually implicate for global temperature, and more
