It is difficult to understand the systemic and complex nature of climate change because human activity affects several ecosystems, which in turn affect others. This visualization represents some of the most important interdependencies between species through the use of visual analogies and a 3D space that can be compared with two overlapping layers.
The atmosphere layer has been broken down to represent the exceedance of the CO2 level beyond which, according to IPCC Report, human civilization as we know it will change.
The land layer was subdivided based on estimated biomass for plants and other species. The breakdown was done with a logarithmic scale in order to make possible comparisons between large and very small categories.
