    This data livestream shows in real time what is causing our environment to change. From the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere to how much the world has warmed because of human activity since the industrial revolution.

    Here’s a breakdown of the data:

    Real time power mix: Our power comes from lots of different sources. The National Grid has created a real time counter that shows how much of Great Britain’s electricity is being produced by each source. It includes renewables, fossil fuels, nuclear and imports.

    Total CO2 emissions (million tonnes): This is the total amount of carbon emissions the world has produced, in millions of tonnes, since the industrial revolution began. Every time coal, gas, oil or wood is burnt, that number will increase and add to the warming number.
