GLRPPR Sector Resource: Global Warming Climate Hot Map

Title:
Global Warming Climate Hot Map

Abstract:
Explore the signs of global warming on this map or Google Earth. The evidence of climate change includes heat waves, sea-level rise, flooding, melting glaciers, earlier spring arrival, coral reef bleaching, and the spread of disease. The greatest concentration of global warming indicators on the map is in North America and Europe because that is where most scientific investigation has been done to date. As scientists focus increasingly on fingerprints of global warming in other regions--from Russia to Antarctica and Oceania to South America--the evidence they find will be added to the map. Scientists project that unless emissions of heat-trapping gases are brought undercontrol, the impacts of climate change are likely to increase.
