Models and Interactive Charts at Saving our Planet

Protesters of all ages and from many countries are launching their planetary cry of distress. They want a future and they want one that does not include a climate crisis. They want something to be done by governments, but few specifically ask for anything other than “more action”. Some might ask for “renewables” while others say they are not scientists. The want “results” and they want governments to “do more”. Many say governments are doing “nothing”.

In reality, many governments of industrialised countries are doing a great deal and spending large sums of money. Nevertheless, often the results are far removed from the objectives. There are reasons for the poor results. This page will help you understand why.

When mechanisms are understood, and reliable data is available, it’s possible to develop models that can show what would happen under different conditions. For example, you know that sea levels are rising, but you might wonder how much they will rise in the coastal city where you live. You might also want to know what would happen if greater or lesser efforts are made to reduce Greenhouse gasses. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can design the energy policy of an entire country. These are the sorts of things that you can investigate on this page.

These charts make it very easy to make assumptions, and see the results. We intend to continuously add new charts that examine additional subjects. If you’re interested in going further, you’ll find lots more information in our Document Library.

Surging Seas Risk Finder:

You enter a coastal place, and you’ll get side-by-side maps showing the location with unchecked CO2 pollution, and the same place with extreme carbon cuts. The maps may take a few moments to appear. We hope you’ll be able to keep your feet dry!

Electricity Map:

Shows electricity consumption and production in quasi real-time for the different countries. Gives figures for carbon intensity: g/kWh, Percentages of low carbon electricity, and Intermittent (renewables). We’re sure some people will be surprised at the results.

UK 2050 Energy Calculator:

A modelling tool you can use to test your own ideas of how the UK might produce and consume low carbon energy in 2050. We hope you’ll get it right!

Air Quality Life Index:

The World Health Organisation calculates the gain in your life expectancy if your local air quality were to meet their guidelines. The guidelines and much data is included for those who wish to research deeper. Take a deep breath and have a look.

Wind and weather patterns:

Worldwide weather is especially useful to show wind speeds which are critical to intermittent wind turbines. For example, often anticyclones cover large areas of northern Europe, and may last for days. Importing electricity from neighbours becomes useless, since they are experiencing the same phenomena.
