Animation shows how global warming is spiraling out of control

A new graphic boils down 166 years of data into a stunning 15-second animation that shows just how quickly global warming is spiraling out of control.Ed Hawkins, a British climate scientist from the University of Reading, created the graphic to illustrate how global average temperature has changed since 1850.

]The animation initially shows tight spirals closer to the center of the image, before the circle expands slowly outward beginning in the 1940s, then rapidly beginning in the 1990s.
