An Incredible Video of Temperature Rise from NASA

NASA Video

NASA has produced this amazing and very short animation that depicts how temperatures around the globe have warmed over the past years.

 The data come from NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York (GISS), which monitors global surface temperatures.

 NASA notes, “All 10 of the warmest years in the GISS analysis have occurred since 1998, continuing a trend of temperatures well above the mid-20th century average."

Where are Australia and New Zealand? We are exposed the brunt of the hole over the ozone layer. Would love to see how global warming is impacting us.

clicking though to the Youtube link exposes the entire width of the video, including Australasia. Thanks for the clip, we weren't forgotten!
