Icebergs are melting because of us

5kg of iceberg melts with every extra kg of CO2 released to the atmosphere .

Human activities, such as electricity generation, emits enormous amount of CO2 into the atmosphere. It’s increasing concentration traps more heat, which causes warming of the planet and iceberg melting. As a result, many animals are loosing their habitat and are going to go extinct.

Carbon intensity of electricity varies

Electricity in the grid is produced from renewables and fossil fuels. However, renewables are of intermittent nature due to weather changes which results increase of fossil fuel consumption to meet the consistent electricity demand. At the same time, over 20% of produced electricity is sometimes unused due to a low demand.
