Global warming in one unmistakably compelling chart

Global warming in one unmistakably compelling chart | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it
If you have any doubt the balance of the globe has warmed over the last century, view this chart.


Produced by NASA, the chart illustrates how temperatures have compared to “normal” from 1880 to present, from pole to pole.

From the 1880 to the 1920s, blue and green shades dominate the chart, signaling cooler than normal temperatures in that era.  Then, from the 1930s to the 1970s, warmer yellow, oranges, and reds shades ooze in, balancing the cooler shades.

The rapid warming at the northern high latitudes especially jumps out in recent decades, reflecting “Arctic amplification” or more intense warming in the Arctic.  Although the warming is most pronounced up north, it is apparent at almost every latitude.

But since the 1970s, the blue and green shades rapidly erode and oranges and reds take over, dramatically.

GLOBAL WARMING - Here is an chart developed by NASA that shows how much global temperatures have changed during the last 140 years.  Quite compelling.

There is no doubt about an general increase of temperature. Whether it is worrysome is not to be seen on this small scale. We had colder periodes like ice ages and now we are likely in a interglacial. So global temperatures change over time. Nice picture btw.

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe

A Remarkable Animation Of The History Of The Universe | Le flux d'Infogreen.lu | Scoop.it

There’s so much we know that we’ll never see. We can extrapolate the concept of the Big Bang--the explosion of everything in the universe from a focused point.
So projects like Beginning, an animation by Grzegorz Nowiński from Novina Studio, are remarkably important. It tells a sort of good parts version of the history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the rise of humankind. Not only is the piece pure visual delight filled with stark textures and fine particle effects that look particularly stunning when projected on water, Beginning is a grounding piece of context--somewhat imagined, sure--but the sort of imagined thing that very much centers our perspective of reality. The average person sort of knows what the Big Bang looked like because of projects like this one, even if Beginning is far more stylized than photoreal.

This project is an intriguing visualization incorporating sound, photography, and projection- view the animation at the link (FastCompany) and read more on the process involved in creating this 4.5 minute history of the universe...
