What is Show.earth?
Show.earth is a public resource for tools that support learning about the earth system.
What does Show.earth do?
Launched in November 2015, Show.earth now showcases web widgets that website and blog owners can use for free to display monthly atmospheric CO2 readings as they change. When a vistor clicks on a widget, they are taken to CO2.earth, the parent site for Show.earth. Once there, the current CO2 level is presented in context that enables deeper learning about the data, what it means, and how it interacts with other systems. Show.earth and CO2.earth work together to advance public learning about climate and earth system changes. This helps build capacity and motivation for shift to infrastructre that is planet and people friendly for the long term.
