Visual material is very helpful for understanding the impact and urgency of climate change. Here we have curated a collection of images and animations.

Climate spiral animations

Climate spiral animations have been popular ways of visualising climate change, most famously in the opening ceromony of the Rio Olympic games. The Climate Lab has a complete collection.

Global Temperature Change,
Artic sea ice volume
Atmospheric CO2 concentration

Malte Meinshausen and Robert Gieseke have produced an excellent interactive tool and set of videos for exploring combined spirals of global temperature, carbon budgets and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.
