Visualizing Best-and-Worst-Case Climate Change Scenarios

Globe showing that most of the world will be warmer by 2100.

BBC has created several data visualizations illustrating how much warmer the Earth will be by 2100. Charts show that even under best-case scenarios, in which climate policies severely limit emissions, major cities such as New York and London will experience July temperatures that are roughly four degrees warmer (2.2 °C and 2.1 °C, respectively) on average in 2100 compared to 1900. Under a worst-case scenario, the average temperature in July in London could increase 10 degrees (5.8 °C) between 1900 and 2100. The visualizations also show that the Arctic is melting twice as fast as the rest of the Earth. 

Take a look.
