Global Warming Visualised In One Scary Animated 3D Graphic

Nicolas Belmonte — Technical Lead for Data Visualisation at Twitter — has created an impressive interactive 3D visualisation of the world’s temperature anomalies since 1800 using data from NASA. It’s like a deformed monster bloating and about to explode.

The higher than normal temperatures are shown in red and lower than normal is blue.

Here’s another graphic from NASA showing the change in global mean surface temperature:
