Our warming world

Sometimes during the frigid days of winter it becomes harder to appreciate that weather does not equal climate. From Gizmodo:

Climate change is a very real thing, but how is it affecting the area that you live in? Fortunately—or, perhaps, unfortunately—you can find out using this interactive map.

Recently updated by New Scientist to roll in the most recent of NASA’s climate data, the map allows you to pin-point your location and see how temperatures have changed over the past 100 years. As well as providing a map of the changes in a spatial sense, you’ll also see how the five-year average has changed with time at your location, and how that compares to the global average.

A snapshot of the interactive map below shows that our region has seen significant warming compared to the 1951-1980 average and even more so since the early 20th century.
