If it’s invisible, then it doesn’t exist. That’s the line of reasoning that dominates most people’s thinking, typically, in the matter of carbon emissions. So, to give some visibility to carbon emissions, literally, last month, Deutsche Bank erected a 70-foot Carbon Counter just a few steps from New York City’s Madison Square Garden-Penn Station.
The edifice gives a running tally of the amount of greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. At the time I saw it, the red digits read: 3,643,965,388,290 (that’s roughly 3.64 trillion metric tons.)
