Living Data Towards a Livable Future
Listen, See, and Rebalance
The Earth has been calling out to us for years now, but in our modern culture of constant message and news notifications, even the planet’s loudest shouts often reach us only as brief, muted whispers. Weltwatch wants to listen and share the message with you in a way that works.

In harmony with VELDT's overall mission of Life Tech Rebalance, the purpose of this site and its information is not to overwhelm you with numbers and alerts. Rather, our intent is to provide an expressively unintrusive experience whereby you can consider the health and well-being of your home Earth alongside your own.
Earth Temperature
Earth's temperature has been rising over the years, due to human activities destructive to our ecosystem and emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2. Global warming and climate change continues to cast a dark shadow on the future of the planet, but our Earth Temperature data hopes to shine a light on this shadow.
EARTH TEMPERATURE PRESET
See in the graph below how the average maximum temperature today around the globe compares to the same average 10 years ago. We're using data from the capital cities of countries signed to the Paris Agreement to output the difference, which is color-coded for quick comprehension.

This color-coding is also used to display the data simply on our VELDT LUXTURE watches at the press of a button, with the watch image here using live data to demonstrate how today's output would appear.

CO2 Concentration
All life on Earth has evolved to live in a specific atmosphere, and it is our duty to protect and stabilize the air that supports our very existence. Among the greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide is perhaps the most representative of our struggle to protect our planet, so here we endeavour to show the increasing level of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere compared to years past.
CO2 METER PRESET
See in the graph below how much higher today's atmospheric concentration is versus 10 years ago. Any increase is dangerous, with the Earth already far above the 300 parts per million (ppm) threshold considered to be safe. The average 10 year difference seems to hover around +23 ppm, so we use that as a pivot point here for assessing progress, but really we should be aiming not to see smaller increases, but an actual decrease in CO2 concentration.

We've assigned colors to the range of increases, and those colors translate directly to the "CO2 Meter" function we've created for our VELDT LUXTURE watches, where you can check the most recent progress at the press of a button. The watch image here is using live data to demonstrate how today's output would appear.
This data comes from the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, USA, provided via our friends at hqcasanova. Scientists closely monitor the data coming from this station to assess how CO2 and other greenhouse gases are changing the planet’s climate and oceans.
Air Quality
Largely invisible but absolutely essential, the air we breathe filters into every part of our body, impacting our health as individuals and communities. The US Air Quality Index developed by the Environmental Protection Agency focuses on 5 pollutants: ground-level ozone, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. The result is a number and color system that is meant to be easy to understand, so that we can all keep track of the air around us.
AIR QUALITY PRESET
See the Air Quality Index in your location of choice by entering the latitude/longitude here. We've also designed a function where you can output the air quality for your current location or a preset location at the press of a button and display it on your VELDT LUXTURE watch via the color code shown here.

Iceberg
Majestic and powerful, icebergs break away from glaciers on our frozen poles, carrying their large reservoirs of freshwater away from land and into the already rising seas. Beauty, strength, and change lie beneath the surface of these ocean giants.

The most recent VELDT LUXTURE watch model is code-named IG for Iceberg, inspired by these natural phenomena.
