This striking visualization presents monthly global temperature
anomalies between the years of 1880 - 2021.
Temperatures have risen in the last 140 years as this video shows.
Many say that man is responsible for this increase.
Others maintain that this is a natural cycle of Global Warming and
Whatever your beliefs are, there is no disputing that the world's
climate is getting warmer. (Albeit by a margin of less than 2°C)
Collectively the last 8 years are the top 8 warmest years since
modern record keeping began in 1880. This annual temperature
data makes up the global temperature record - and it is how
scientist know that the planet is warming.
Immense thanks to NASA Visualization Studio for allowing us to use these trackers.
