10 year global temperature compared to 1961-1990 average for locations around the world

Over the past decade, global temperatures have undergone substantial changes when compared to the 1961-1990 average. The Earth's climate has exhibited a discernible warming trend, with many locations worldwide experiencing temperature deviations from the historical baseline.

These variations in temperature patterns are indicative of the broader impact of climate change. Scientific analyses and reports consistently highlight the increasing global temperatures and associated climatic shifts. Many regions have witnessed temperatures surpassing the averages recorded during the 1961-1990 period, signaling a noteworthy departure from historical norms.

These temperature anomalies have manifested in diverse ways across different geographical locations. Some regions have encountered more frequent and intense heatwaves, contributing to challenges such as droughts, water scarcity, and adverse impacts on ecosystems. Concurrently, other areas have experienced alterations in precipitation patterns, leading to shifts in weather extremes, including more intense storms and altered seasonal behaviors.

The animation below shows the evolving distribution of 12-month average temperature anomalies across the surface the Earth from 1850 to present. Anomalies are measured with respect to 1951 to 1980 averages. The red vertical line shows the global mean, and matches the red trace in the upper-left corner. The data is from Berkeley Earth and the animation was prepared with Matlab.

The consequences of these temperature changes extend beyond meteorological considerations. They have far-reaching implications for ecosystems, agriculture, sea levels, and human societies. Rising temperatures contribute to the ongoing debate and urgency surrounding climate action, as nations grapple with mitigating the effects of climate change and adapting to the evolving environmental conditions.

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

Map of Fox Species Distribution

Foxes are small to medium-sized members of the Canidae family, which also includes wolves, dogs, and other related animals. There are about 37 species of foxes distributed around the world, and they inhabit a wide range of environments, from forests and grasslands to deserts and urban areas. Below is the map of fox species distribution  created by Reddit user isaacSW Here are some of the most well-known fox species and their distribution: Red Fox ( Vulpes vulpes ): The red fox is one of the most widely distributed fox species and is found in North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of North Africa. They are adaptable and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, grasslands, and urban areas. Arctic Fox ( Vulpes lagopus ): The Arctic fox is found in the Arctic regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. They have adaptations that help them survive in cold climates, such as a thick coat that changes color with the seasons. Gray Fox ( Urocyon cinereoargenteus ): The gray fox

Moose population in North America

The moose ( Alces alces ) is the largest member of the deer family, characterized by its massive size, long legs, and distinctive broad, palmate antlers found in males. They have a dark brown or black coat and a humped shoulder. Moose are primarily found in the boreal and mixed deciduous forests of North America, Europe, and Asia. They are solitary animals, often found near bodies of water, and are herbivores that feed on leaves, bark, twigs, and aquatic vegetation. Despite their size, moose are strong swimmers and can run up to 35 miles per hour. The moose population in North America is shrinking swiftly. This decrease has been correlated to the opening of roadways and landscapes into this animal's north range.   In North America, the moose range includes almost all of Canada and Alaska, the northern part of New England and New York, the upper Rocky Mountains, northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and Isle Royale.    In 2014-2015, the North American moo
