Discover Your Future Climate: How Will Your City Feel in 2070?

Climate change is reshaping our world, and in just fifty years, cities like Los Angeles will experience climates drastically different from today. By 2070, LA's climate is predicted to mirror that of present-day New Delhi, with average temperatures rising from 59.8°F to 65.2°F and summers becoming hot and arid.

Explore Your Future Climate Zone

Curious about how your city will change? The Pudding's interactive Climate Zones map provides a fascinating glimpse into the future. "Climate Zones - How Will Your City Feel in the Future?" explores the current and future climates of 70 global cities. Using the K√∂ppen climate classification, it divides the world into five main climate zones—Arid, Tropical, Temperate, Cold, and Polar—along with their subcategories. You can select a city from the list and watch it transition into its future climate zone, discovering how global heating will alter average temperatures.

National Geographic's Interactive Visualization

National Geographic offers another impressive tool: "Your Climate, Changed." This interactive map reveals the future climate analogs of 2,500 cities worldwide. For instance, London is expected to experience a climate similar to today's Sovicille, Italy. Based on worst-case climate change scenarios, the map automatically detects your location to show your nearest future global heating twin. It compares your city's current climate zone to its projected climate in 2070.

How Hot Cities Could Be in 2050

Many of the world’s cities will face sharply different climates by 2050. Vivid Maps has visualized how climate change will affect 6,000 cities globally. Using the Global Environmental Stratification, based on modeling future climate conditions as predicted by 63 emission scenario combinations, the map shows dramatic changes in climate.

Here's a snapshot of future climate scenarios for some cities:

  • London: Could feel as hot as Paris by 2050, with Paris’s climate resembling that of San Francisco.
  • San Francisco: Expected to feel like Melbourne.
  • New York City: Will have a climate similar to Bologna, Italy.
  • Moscow: Its climate will be comparable to that of Boston.

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
