Climate Change Time Machine "Dashboard" (credit: NASA Climate Change)

NASA developed a Climae Time Machine to see the effects of environmental alterations now in progress. The series of 'big data' visualizations shows how important climate change indicators including, polar sea ice, sea level, CO2 level, and temperature measurement, are changing over time. By sliding the cursor on each visualization, you can view the changes to the Southeastern USA; Northern Europe, the Amazon River Delta; and to Southeast Asia.

According to NASA, the Earth’s surface temperature in 2019 was the second warmest since modern record-keeping began in 1880. It is also 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit (+ 0.98 Celsius) warmer than the 1951-1980 averages.

As additional data points are constantly being added to the NASA debases. With more and more data, their the models and visualizations will become ever more exact in the regional presentations.
