Berkeley Earth's Global Warming Movie for 2018

This animated map shows the history of temperature changes around the world from 1850 to 2018. Each frame is a 12-month moving average and shows the difference the temperature then observed and the average climate from 1951 to 1980. The long-term history of global warming is clearly represented. One can also see a variety of short-term fluctuations associated with variations in weather patterns and internal variability, such as the El Nino/La Nina pattern in the Equatorial Pacific. This animation is based on the work of Berkeley Earth.
