Climate Change

Almost breaking news, both the November and the December 2015 were the warmest ones in Germany since regular measuring started in 1881. We show all other heat records — 9 months have been the warmest since 2001 — clearly visible in 12 single line charts. Yearly temperature courses superimposed over each other explain that the last ten years almost constantly lie above the 135-year average. These visualisations deliver an impression of how climate change can be measured in Germany, too. Full credit: Lara Malberger, Julian Stahnke, Paul Blickle, Ellena Nachbar and Sascha Venohr
