How cool is this?!

Just occasionally, whilst randomly ‘surfing’ with no particular destination or subject matter in mind, one comes across a truly outstanding website.

www.breathingearth.net is a case in point. I can’t even remember the route through which I stumbled upon it, but that doesn’t really matter. What matters is the cleverly simple way in which breathingearth.net crystallises the direction our fragile earth is taking.

What do I mean? Well, in the short time it’s taken me to write this, 137,000 tonnes of CO2 have been emitted. 895 people have been born. 347 people have died. Of course, having just written that sentence, the numbers are already out of date.

Give it a try, leave it running for a while, and see how it makes you feel.
