Science Scene - Global Warming?

NASA has created a new animation showing regional temperature changes on a map of the Earth from 1880-2011. On the map, blues represent temperatures lower than baseline averages, while reds indicate temperatures higher than the average. As the 131 years pass, the map turns from bluish-white to increasingly yellow and red. Caused by the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, agricultural practices, and other human impacts, climate change has currently raised temperatures 0.8 degrees Celsius (1.44 degrees Fahrenheit) higher than the Industrial Revolution average.



  1. Watching it to the end is a bit scary...yeesh.

  2. One of these days I will get a system that will show complete videos. Not much we can do as individuals but we can do our best. I am always hoping for better times and believe we will do what is the right thing, before it is ALL OVER! wE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

  3. That's just plain scary. Especially with the lack of winter we've had this year...(Hugs)Indigo
