Data doesn't need to be fancy, incredibly attractive, or even overly complex to tell a powerful story.
Sometimes, in more or less the purest visual form, you've got everything you need – and that's the case with this piece from NASA.
Over the last 100 years, global temperatures have soared – although obviously the reasons for and severity of this fluctuation are being debated, it's pretty clear to see that it's happening.
The comparisons are being made against the mean temperatures between 1951 and 1980 – admittedly, quite a small period, especially comparing against just 100 years – and show that, particularly towards the North Pole, temperatures have increased dramatically.
More debate to be had, but with research and data like this, at least we're all much, much better informed.
