A New Kind of Climate Change Graphic

Urgency. Not panic, but a healthy sense of urgency. That’s what we need.

Remember a couple of posts back when I talked about the linkages between food waste and climate change? I wrote in that post that everything we can do to reverse climate change, we should do. I also wrote that I was going to say that a lot more often.

So here is why I’m going to make this idea a common refrain – we need a sense of urgency when it comes to climate change. Just below, I’ve linked to a graphic that I hope will add to that sense of urgency. I noticed this graphic bouncing around the internet recently, so you might have already seen it. Regardless, I urge you to click on the link below and watch it a few times.

Before clicking though, let me orient you a bit. Most graphics we see showing global temperature changes are oriented on an X/Y graph with global temperatures shown on the vertical axis and time demonstrated on the horizontal axis (like NASA’s graph at this link).
