Interactive Map on Climate Change

Friday, January 15th, 2010

The link below goes to an interactive map of the world showing the impact in various places of a average global temperature rise of 4 degrees Celcius. For example some parts of Australia would experience a 6 degree rise, whist the oceans around Australia a 2 or 3 degree rise. Note the map doesn’t work in Internet Explorer 7 – it did work in Firefox for me.

The map was produced by the Met office in the UK, and is a good tool for identifying the predicted “hot spots” (a bad pun, I know) for forest fires, crops, water availability, sea level rise, marine, drought, permafrost, tropical cyclones and extreme temperature.
