This video provides a visualization of 2019 global record high temperatures and record low temperatures. In our research we concluded that 2019 was the second warmest year on Earth since 1850. The global mean temperature in 2019 was colder than 2016 but warmer than every other year that has been directly measured.
This animation shows how the distribution of temperature anomalies on the Earth’s surface has shifted over the last 170 years. Since the first Earth Day, 50 years ago, the Earth has warmed about 0.9 °C (1.6 °F).
There has been a close correlation between changes in global temperature and the rise of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere during the last 170 years. Here’s an animated history of temperature vs. carbon dioxide.
