Global Warming on Google Maps

Cal-Adapt Climate Tools

Cal-Adapt, from the Public Interest Energy Research program, has created a series of Google Maps to help show the possible effects of climate change on California.

The maps allow users to visualise a number of possible scenarios that could be caused by climate change. You can view the possible effects of global warming on temperatures, sea level and wildfires in California.

The Decadal Averages Map allows you to explore various models and scenarios of future temperature projections. It allows you to view a map displaying the projected temperature for each decade from 1950-2099 for each month of the year using a variety of climate models and scenarios.

If global warming floods the coast and much of the interior of California become plagued with heat waves and wildfires, then there will be a lot less pleasant places to live in that state.
