Visualizing Climate Change

We at Radish Lab are proud to unveil our newest interactive, created for Climate Central, showing how winters are warming across the country.

We wanted to produce something that encouraged users to explore and make their own connections; a tough challenge for a programmer but a rewarding experience, especially as someone who cares deeply about climate change.

Go ahead, try it! Type in your city or click on a featured one and we’ll connect it with another city whose current winters (measured by freezing nights) are expected to be comparable to the selected city’s by 2100. Sound confusing? That’s why visualizations are such a useful tool. Let our map show you what I mean:

 

We hope this helps people make sense of how winters are actually migrating due to the projected effects of climate change. And we hope you play with it, share it and let us know what you think!
