Six Decades of Warming Earth

This color-coded map displays a progression of changing global surface temperatures anomalies from 1950 through 2013. The intensity of the yellow, orange, and red colors shows how much temperatures have increased compared to baseline temperature data collected from 1880 to the present. (Credit: NASA/GSFC, GISS).
