Temperature anomalies arranged by country 1900 – 2016

Take a look at this beautiful data visualization by Antti Lipponen. It shows the average monthly temperature anomalies arranged by country from 1900 to 2016 with a base period of 1951 to 1980. A quite impressive visualization of climate change.

Positives: This happens nearly every morning in California.

Positives: This happens nearly every morning in California. The sun rises and 4 gigawatts of industrial solar power comes online. There’s another 2.7 gigawatts of residential rooftop solar that doesn’t show on this graph. So what we have here are six nuclear power plants worth of power that are producing minimal carbon emissions and no radioactive waste. 

Of course, this is a fraction of the solar power Germany produces on a clear day so California can do better. It’s still a very good thing.
