New Black Box to Record Downfall of Civilization

Black Box

Black Box is a new project in Australia that will record the history of the world as it collapses. The people behind the project see this as inevitable.

And with the problems with climate change, it is easy to understand why. Last summer the UN came out with a scientific report on exactly how much the world has been ruined due to climate change. And it recently held a conference on the matter in Glasgow. But some say that the efforts around the world to change over to cleaner energy sources and green tech may be too little too late.

Earth’s Black Box is a 10 meter by 4 meter by 3 meter steel monolith that will be constructed on a remote area in Australia’s Tasmanian west coast. The location was chosen over other places like Malta, Norway and any desert locations. This is because of its geopolitical and geological stability, which is hoped will ensure its preservation when the inevitable downfall of the world comes.

Chosen for its geopolitical and geological stability, ahead of other candidates like Malta, Norway and Qatar, the idea is that the Tasmanian site can cradle the black box for the benefit of a future civilization, should catastrophic climate change cause the downfall of ours.

The creators say that Earth’s Black Box will record every step we take towards this catastrophe. Hundreds of data sets, measurements and interactions relating to the health of our planet will be continuously collected and safely stored for future generations.

They say that the purpose of the device is to provide an unbiased account of the events that lead to the demise of the planet, hold accountability for future generations, and inspire urgent actions.”

“Unless we dramatically transform our way of life, climate change and other manmade perils will cause our civilization to crash. How the story ends is up to us”

Jim Curtis from Clemenger BBDO, a marketing agency working for the project, told the Australian Broadcasting Company, “Obviously it’s really a powerful concept when you say to someone, ‘Earth’s got a black box’. Because they’re like, ‘Why does it need a black box? But first and foremost, it’s a tool.”

Jonathan Kneebone, co-founder of artistic collective the Glue Society, which is also involved, said “It’s built to outlive us all. If the worst does happen, just because the power grids go down, this thing will still be there.”
