Earth’s black box or also known as “Earth’s black box” It is a project formed by many scientific researchers and artists who… It aims to bring climate science data closer to future civilizations.
This box is intended to store information and measurements related to the health of the planet and is promoted due to the climate crisis affecting the world. They noted on the web that the build would seek to “provide an impartial account of the events that led to the planet’s disappearance, hold future generations to account, and urge urgent action.”
Artist and project manager, Jonathan Kneppon explained that “the fund will serve as an independent and indestructible ledger of the ‘health’ of the planet.”. On the site, they warned that “unless we radically change our way of life, climate change and other man-made dangers will lead to the collapse of our civilization.”
The location of the Earth’s black box will be on the island of Tasmania and will be completed in early 2022. However, embedded hard drives have been recording algorithm-based results since the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.
The structure is built using solar panels and batteries, which will document everything related to changes in land and sea temperature.. So do ocean acidification, the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and energy consumption or military spending, among other data.
For its part, the black box will constantly download scientific information from the Internet, while The developers estimate that it has the ability to store enough data for the next three to five decades.
Information on climate change, species extinctions, environmental pollution, and health impacts will be recorded in the monolithic structure, so that if some day some future society can discover the archives, they will be able to piece together what happened to our planet.
“The idea is that if the Earth becomes extinct as a result of climate change, the indestructible recording device will be there for those who are left to learn from,” Jim Curtis, executive creative director at Climinger BBDO Marketing Agency, told The Associated Press. Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). “It also exists to hold leaders accountable to make sure their actions or inactions are recorded,” he added.
The creators asserted that “the device’s purpose is to provide an unbiased account of the events that led to the demise of the planet, hold future generations to account, and inspire urgent action. How the story ends is entirely up to us.”
