There is a new signal on the Climate Clock in Union Square in New York City. The clock has been updated to now also note the percentage of the world’s energy that comes from renewable sources like solar or wind, according to the New York Times.
the the clock was a public art project called “Metronome,” which was set up in Union Square in 2020. The the clock was designed to count time until the climate crisis. “It’s our way of shouting this number from the rooftops.” Gan Golan, one of the artists involved in the project, told the New York Times. “The world is literally counting on us.”
The clock will now alternate between the time remaining to reduce emissions and the renewable energy figures. From April 18, the world was about 12 percent renewable.
“Our new LIFELINE shows the% of global energy generated by renewable sources”, we read on official Instagram Publish about the project. “Climate Clock has joined with activists to amplify this message and remind us that there is still a window of hope.”
the change is believed to coincide with Earth Day, during which many demonstrations and events will take place across the city.
