This Clock Tells The Time Remaining Before The Earth’s Deadline

Now, that’s a way to tell people how much time we have left before the Earth gives up on us! Gan Golan and Andrew Boyd reprogrammed Metronome’s digital clock in Manhattan to show how much time our planet has left before it succumbs to global warming and climate change. The digital clock also serves as a call for action, for people to  reverse the effects of climate change before it’s too late, as the New York Times details: 

On Saturday at 3:20 p.m., messages including “The Earth has a deadline” began to appear on the display. Then numbers — 7:103:15:40:07 — showed up, representing the years, days, hours, minutes and seconds until that deadline.
“This is our way to shout that number from the rooftops.” Mr. Golan said just before the countdown began. “The world is literally counting on us.”
The Climate Clock, as the two artists call their project, will be displayed on the 14th Street building, One Union Square South, through Sept. 27, the end of Climate Week. The creators say their aim is to arrange for the clock to be permanently displayed, there or elsewhere.

The bulletin of atomic scientists have been trying to do the same thing for decades. I bet you did not even know there was a bulletin of atomic scientists.
