Know The Number

In the heart of New York, a new electronic billboard has popped up. This one keeps track of the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere - which is a staggering task, considering that it's increasing by 800 tonnes per second.
Check out the live version at know-the-number.com but be ready to be stunned as you see the numbers whirring. As i've written this, it's gone up by 700,000 tonnes. Since the pic was taken, it has gone up almost 1,000,000,000 tonnes!
