Scary timeline map of global warming. Lacks any detail, so is dependent of course on the quality of the base data.
Still I'd be hard pressed to say they who provide or prepared the base data could fudge figures across the world to such a great degree. Not that I could image the world wide conspiracy that others beleive in - I mean even China is giving the appearance of fully supporting measures to reduce atmospheric CO2. http://www.smh.com.au/multimedia/enviro ... -k5vv.html
I take it you are from Down Under? The greatest problem IMO is your Great Coral Reef. All that loss of coral is not good at all.
As far as China goes, they ain't giving up anything on cap-n-trade. Ditto India. There is no real mineral base in China so they have to import so much of there raw material (with the rare mineral exception, which they are blessed with). They are prudently trading their US dollar holdings (such as Afghanistan's giant copper reserves and Venezuelan high-sulphur crude oil) while it has some sort of value. Canada is digging in its heels more than any other country. They haven't a choice though as they will/are unifying with USA and Mexico in some sort of.
Your "snapshot" timeline video > It'd be interesting what it would look like from the mid 1940s to early 1960s to see how the atomic/hydrogen bomb fireballs heated up sectors of the planet, namely over Russia, China, Australia, US and the Pacific testing areas......
PS - Great Britain blasted many in Australia. Google shows some really neat craters ;-/
