CO2 | Climate Alert!
Carbon dioxide CO2 is the primary greenhouse gas emitted through human activities, including electricity, transportation and industry. Its concentration in the atmosphere reaches dangerous record quantity.
Threat level: Critical
Carbon emissions from human activity have contributed to a vicious cycle of deteriorating climatic conditions leading to even more extreme global temperatures, greater weather instability, rising sea levels and other nature-based calamities.
Scientists predict that global temperature will increase 4-5 degrees, which would almost certainly take down our civilization. We’ve crossed a barrier that irreversibly changes life as we know it.
This is a wakeup call…
About how much impact we do actually have on the planet. Solving climate change is a huge international challenge. Only a concerted global effort, involving the governments of all nations, will be enough to avert dangerous consequences. But that said, the individual actions of everyday people are still crucial.
Changing our daily habits and routines, WE can be the change. But what can you, as an individual person or family, do that will most make a difference?
Here are a few tips to kicking the CO2 habit and reduce CO2 emissions by yourself:
- Make your home and household energy efficient.
- Buy energy and water efficient appliances.
- Purchase ‘green’ electricity.
- Walk, cycle or use public transportation.
- Buy local produce and eat less red meat.
- Turn off your idling car engine. That cuts pollution and saves you money.
- Switch off unnecessary lights and equipment, and turn off computers when not needed.
- Recycle, re-use and avoid useless purchases.
You can help make a difference! Start today!

The street-sign-style poster shows the illustration of a skull with crossed bones (the symbol for hazardous or poisonous material) replacing the letter ‘O’ in CO2 on a toxic green background.
Green is the colour of money and represents also nature. The black part of the image with the poisonous green word: ‘kills’ stands for the destruction of our environment through massive CO2 emissions. The diagonal represents the steep curve of increasing emissions, causing pollution and Global Warming.
This CO2 Kills warning sign is made for all like-minded individuals who care about our beautiful planet. Painted with environment-friendly vector techniques.
