Climate Change

The essential data about climate change explained in 16 infographics. Detailed charts and maps covering climate, global sea surface temperature, antarctica ice loss, global temperature anomalies and more. Learn the truth about climate change and how it relates to the state of the world on The Global Education Project website with un-biased facts from the most reliable sources.
Climate
Historical and contemporary overview of greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric concentrations—which countries emit the most CO2, total and per capita; methane; ocean warming and sea level rise; global temperature projections; glacier and ice loss.
Global Sea Surface Temperature The ocean—the major heat, carbon and water reservoir of the world—is a crucial regulator of the Earth's climate. More than 93% of the enhanced atmospheric heating since the 1970s has been absorbed by the ocean, even affecting the deep ocean. The absorption...
Antarctica Ice Loss
Global Temperature Anomalies "Eighteen of the 19 warmest years all have occurred since 2001, with the exception of 1998. The year 2016 ranks as the warmest on record. This research is consistent with similar constructions prepared by the Climatic Research Unit and the National Oceanic...
Historical Temperature and Major Greenhouse Gasses CO2 concentrations are well above historic maximum levels.* The GWP (Global Warming Potential) of methane gas (CH4) is greater than the GWP of CO2. Warming could release vast quantities of CH4 from thawing tundra and seabed methane hydrates. *Levels...
Arctic Sea Ice Extent Satellite based records of Arctic sea ice began in 1978. By late October of 2020, the main nursery of Arctic sea ice in Siberia had yet to start freezing. The late freeze could amplify feedbacks that cause more decline of sea ice. Less sea ice means less...
Greenland Land Ice Loss
World Cumulative CO2 Emissions
Top Emitters of CO2 Research reported in 2017 shows that just 100 fossil fuel producers emitted 71% of global industrial greenhouse gases from 1988 to 2015. 51% of industrial emissions since 1988 can be linked to just 25 producers, including both public and state-owned...

Global Ecology
Population, pollution, greenhouse gases and deforestation are creating never before seen changes in Earth's living systems—including a cultural and species extinction rate that is the highest in the planet's history.
Global Carbon Budget
Fossil Fuel Production Gap Countries are planning to produce about 50% more fossil fuels by 2030 than would be consistent with a 2°C global average temperature rise, and 120% more than would be consistent with a 1.5°C rise. The production gap is largest for coal. By 2030, countries...
