An Interactive Map of the World's Climate in 2100
Climate Central and the World Meteorological Organization have created a new interactive map that illustrates the temperatures cities can expect in 2100 if the world fails to reduce carbon emissions. The graphic also includes temperature changes if "moderate emissions cuts" are enacted.
According to a post by Brian Kahn introducing the new tool, the map "shows how the average summer high in the future in each of these cities compares to other cities of today. In some cases, the shift puts them in a completely new temperature zone." Looking around the map, the largest rise in temperature is projected in Sofia, Bulgaria, "with temperatures rising nearly 15°F (8.4°C) by 2100." Temperatures in Sofia, Bulgaria, therefore, would be a lot more like they are in Port Said, Egypt now.
