What Global Warming Means For You – Interactive Graphic

What does global warming mean for you?  Google “Your Warming World New Scientist”. This new interactive graphic at New Scientist can now show you. Check out your hometown, Uncle Harry’s, or any other meaningful place for you. The global temperature map it presents, from the 1990s to the present, can be dragged to show any desired area. Drag the moveable marker to any specific point you wish, or specify the city and country in the top bar, and a graph will appear on the right, showing how much warmer (or colder, conceivably) the location is compared to the average temperature from 1950 to 1980. Spoiler alert: I have yet to find a spot that is currently colder than the average, and the general trend is increasingly hotter  through the present. Place the pointer near spots closer to the Arctic and the record shows the greater extremes of a temperate climate.  Finally, choose a global map from an earlier  set of decades on the top bar.   Inevitably, the one shown is of a past cooler planet.


Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
