See How Climate Change Is Affecting Your Backyard With This Map

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. This might be one of those maps worth sending to anyone who claims climate change isn't a thing. [New Scientist]
