Trees store carbon. Our jumbo-sized Christmas Tree is based on a single Sitka Spruce, grown commercially in the UK. Over a typical 40-year life the tree will capture and store 742 kg of carbon dioxide.
So we thought it would be fun to show that happening - admittedly with a touch of Christmas magic!
There is a clear aim for leaders this December at Lima. But the reality is that this is a shared challenge. Every person, company, organisation on this planet needs to see this challenge and relate world emissions, to temperature rises and their own potential to contribute to the solution.
We are looking for a creative and numerate graphic designer with a flair for 2d / 3d data visualisation to join us in our Stokes Croft, Bristol office. The position would suit a design graduate or perhaps freelance / junior designer with some commercial experience and an interest in the environment.
Shell and their creative agency JWT asked Carbon Visuals to provide dimensional reference sketches and methodology checking for the company’s visual campaign on Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS).
The campaign, run by Shell with images by JWT, highlights the amount of CO2 - one million tonnes per year - that could be captured from the Peterhead Power Station and transported by pipeline offshore for long-term storage deep under the North Sea.
All the available freshwater is an animation I have wanted to make for years. We were delighted when South West Water wanted to make it too. This blog post explains some of the history.
The opportunity to create a film to show the world’s CO2 emissions in real-time has been a long-held dream. We wondered if this was the moment when we were approached by WBCSD to make a film to show the necessity of Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS).
Our film would have to clearly articulate the role of CCS in keeping global warming below 2° C threshold, as well as showing that renewables, though growing fast, are not growing as fast as global energy demand. We would also need an introduction to the scale of the problem in terms of global fossil fuel usage and of course carbon emissions!
