Climate idea

Will a relatable description of the problem help people understand?

On the back of an envelope I calculated the total size of the energy imbalance caused by our carbon emissions. The Earth is receiving 240 Watts of energy from the sun per square meter of surface. Due to greenhouse gases, only 239 Watts are emitted back to space. NASA's CERES project has confirmed this, the difference is 1 Watt per square meter. Multiplied by the sunward facing surface of the Earth that amounts to 250,000 gigawatts, or 250,000 nuclear power stations, each surrounded by 300,000 three bar electric fires, pointing up at the sky and constantly emitting heat. That's what we're doing to our atmosphere. Will this help people understand the urgency of action?
