You’ve probably seen several plots that highlight just how much above or below average annual temperatures have been over the past several hundred years – maybe the “hockey stick” graph or the “temperature spiral.” A new plot has been done in a circle this year, and just like the previous plots mentioned, it highlights just how significant these past few years have been. Globally, these past 3 years have been the hottest ever recorded. You can watch this plot animate and read more from Climate Central.
