Climate Scoreboard

This Climate Scoreboard helps track progress in the ongoing negotiations in Copenhagen to produce an international climate treaty. The Scoreboard allows users to check, on a daily basis, whether proposals in the treaty process commit countries to enough greenhouse gas emissions reductions to achieve widely expressed goals.
This Scoreboard shows the score -- expected temperature in 2100 if current proposals in the global climate negotiations were fully implemented.
When country proposals to the UN change, a team in Copenhagen will immediately update the analysis using the C-ROADS simulator. In real time, around the world, wherever it is posted, the Scoreboard will automatically update – showing both the progress that has been realized and the effort still required to achieve the goal.
Use this tool to help inform your colleagues, friends, and/or visitors to your facility and website about the gap between what we want and where we are headed!
Link to the Scoreboard: http://climatescoreboard.org for more info and so you can also embed their widget easily on your site, blog, Facebook, etc. to help spread the word! Watch The Climate Scoreboard Video from Climate Interactive on Vimeo.
