NASA animation charts global warming since 1880

The sky is raining climate change reports these days.

If it’s not UNEP, the World Bank or PwC then the UK’s Met Office and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are getting in on the act.

And don’t forget the US Federal Government’s latest contribution last week.

It’s easy to get confused by this deluge of information and statistics – which is why this new animation from NASA is so useful.

In their own words it “displays a progression of changing global surface temperatures anomalies from 1880 through 2012. Higher then normal temperatures are shown in red and lower then normal temperatures are shown in blue.”

For more details on their methodology visit the NASA website.
