The United Nations Climate Change Negotiations are taking place December 7-18, 2009 in Copenhagen. The team from ClimateInteractive has created a kinda cool tool for tracking the progress of the negotiations in real time which can be displayed online pretty much anywhere.
The Climate Scoreboard is an embeddable widget that you and your friends and colleagues can include in blogs, websites, Facebook pages, press releases, newsletters, and more.
It shows the Score -- expected temperature in 2100 -- if current proposals in the global climate negotiations were fully implemented and how close those proposals bring us to our goals.
When country proposals to the UN change, a team in Copenhagen will immediately update the analysis (using the C-ROADS model created by Sustainability Institute, MIT, and Ventana Systems). In real time, around the world, wherever the Scoreboard is posted, the Scoreboard will update – showing both the progress that has been realized and the effort still required to achieve the goal.
Here's a video about how the Climate Scoreboard works:
