A great animation from NOAA that can be found on their Trends in Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide page.

Housekeeping Note

New tiles will be added at the top and so there will be empty blocks like this at times. It will be easy to see new material, but there is stylistic downside. 

 

Glacier Image Pairs

This is from a list of Glacier Image Pairs which are images of glacier taken in the same location but at different times (30-100 year apart).  The change is striking.

Wealth Inequality Video

This is a powerful video on wealth inequality (~2102?). For recent data on wealth inequality go to the World Wealth and Income Database

World Wealth & Income Database

The  World  Wealth and Income Database will create graphics like this one. It gives the share of income by the top 1% by for years 1955 to the present for the U.S. (top line), Canada, France, Germany, Sweden, and UK. You can choose the countries, years, and other variables to plot. Data is also available.

NASA Global Maps

NASA Global Maps Create maps showing average surface temperature for different time periods. Great for discussing the difference between a distribution and a averages. The graph here is for February 2015 and we see that the east coast of the U.S. and into Canada was well below average in temperature, while most every where else was above average and globally the average temperature was 0.86C warmer. This was the same February where Senator Inhofe brought a snowball to the senate floor to "disprove" global warming.
