Climate Central is a nonprofit news organization composed of scientists and science journalists with the mission of conducting and reporting scientific research on climate change and energy issues.
Recently, we helped Climate Central with two interactives that visualize some pretty incredible data. We worked with the client to paint what we hope is a big picture and pretty compelling story of climate change today using D3.js. These interactives have every city in the US with a population over 40,000 people represented, so chances are, your hometown is on there somewhere.
Did you know that if we keep with our current emissions trends, within your lifetime Boston’s summer temperatures will rival North Miami beach’s summers today?
Or that, in the near future, a chilly winter in Minneapolis will feel more like a December in Asheville, North Carolina?
