This is the Global Risk and Opportunity Indicator. You can use it to calculate and visualize the risk our planet is facing with regards to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming. Choose parts per million (PPM) of greenhouse gases in the menu to the left, and the average temperature rise in degrees Celsius in the menu to the right. In the third menu you can compare the probability for climate change with other events, such as fatal flight accidents, and display them both on the meter below.

If the probability of flight accidents was the same as the probability for and there would be accidents per year instead of 30 per year.

That is the same as
accidents per day, or
accidents per hour.

If the probability of struck by lighting per year was the same as the probability for and there would be accidents per year instead of 9000 people struck by lighting per year.

That is the same as
accidents per day, or
accidents per hour.

If the probability of dying in terrorist attack was the same as the probability for and there would be accidents per year instead of 7473 killed in terrorist attacks.

That is the same as
accidents per day, or
accidents per hour.
