Climate Witness

June 2, 2008

We’re often told that Climate Change effects people all over the world – but that can be a difficult thing to visualise.

WWF have a fantastic tool to illustrate how truly global this problem is. An interactive map allows you to browse the various results of climate change. Disappearing Alpine snow, severe drought and increased pests in Australia and rain and mosquitoes instead of snow in Alaska.

And maybe the most interesting part of the site? Each personal story is independently reviewed by a scientist – and put into perspective. Powerful stuff.
