NASA Climate change visualisation 2022

Do you still have some climate denier friends? NASA just released their latest climate change visuaisation that depicts global temperatures between 1880 and 2021. Temperatures in our century has increased mainly due to human activities. 

NASA indicates that these temperatures are based on data from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). Anomalies are defined relative to a base period of 1951 to 1980. The data file used to create this visualization can be accessed here: data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/tabledata_v4/GLB.Ts+dSST.csv.

The "climate spiral" is a visualization designed by climate scientist Ed Hawkins from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Reading: https://www.climate-lab-book.ac.uk/sp.... Climate spiral visualizations have been widely distributed; a version was even part of the opening ceremony of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. Download the video: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/4975
