Visualizing A Heat Wave - 2003 Europe

I put together another heat wave visualization. I chose the 2003 heat wave in Europe. I previously did this for the 2011 heat wave in the central US.

Is Atmospheric CO2 Increasing Exponentially?

I saw someone ask this on reddit and was surprised that no clear breakdowns showed up when I googled so I figured I'd work it out...

Visualize How Much Carbon And CO2 Humans Emit

It's hard to picture exactly how much carbon we emit. One decent way to do it is to relate it to the carbon in forests.


Tool For Comparing City Climate Profiles

I've added another tool.



This one lets you compare city climate profiles using the same interface that the city doppleganger tool used. That is, it compares:
  • average monthly high temps
  • average monthly low temps
  • average monthly rainfall
  • average monthly humidity
  • average monthly sunlight
There are roughly 1,000 cities available, so try it out. It's quite fun.


Increased CO2 Levels Negatively Affect Our Brains

Something that isn't often discussed is the non-greenhouse impacts of increasing atmospheric CO2. One of those is that increased CO2 levels affect human cognition, so I've summarized some of the research here.

Pro-Coal And Pro-Life Are Incompatible Positions

An interesting situation exists in the US. The pro-life and pro-coal factions are both part of the GOP. I understand that we only have two parties at the national level in the US so you have to pick the one that you most align with, but the GOP should drop its pro-coal stance if it wants to keep its pro-life stance.
