The temperature spiral was designed by Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom. The animated graphic features a rainbow-colored record of global temperatures spinning outward from the late 19th century to the present as the Earth heats up.
This is the initial spiral that stops at 2016 and no comments needed, are we reaching 1.5C this year? The proof is temperature records broken every month for the past year.
The second is even more scary but it became viral, it’s popularity can be attributed in part to its hypnotic nature and the visceral way it shows the present predicament of climate change.
