Extreme ice survey in partner with 350.org works together to raise awareness about global warming. The extreme ice survey team has set up time lapse cameras across the globe and are recording the gradual melt of glaciers. Some of their results are eye opening. 350 is a website dedicated to spreading the word of climate change across the globe; both sites containing a list of how to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

This interactive map shows the changing population and CO2 emissions released in the seconds you are on the site. By rolling over a country it will show you the total population, how often someone dies and is born, and how long it takes to emit 1,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. In the United States it takes only 5.3 seconds, while in Greenland its every 15.4 hours.
