In part 1 of this series I listed some websites that provide useful information on climate change. In this post (part two) I will provide links to specific figures and graphs on areas of climate science.
Please note that many important climate science figures come from the IPCC reports and scientific papers which are often not available to view online (although the IPCC reports are free to download) so some figures necessarily come from websites which have copies.
One website that collates scientific images in one place is: Global Warming Art. Other links are provides in the drop-down boxes below.
+/- Temperature and temperature trends - click to expand
+/- Carbon dioxide levels, comparison with temperatures and humans vs volcanoes
+/- Sea level rise and ice melt (Glaciers, Greenland, Antarctica and the Arctic)
Solar activity vs temperature rise
No correlation between solar activity and global warming (Skeptical science)
-summaries scientific papers on solar activity.
Attribution of climate change - two slightly different ways of looking at it
Effect on radiative forcing (IPCC FAQs)
Effect on temperature (Global warming art)
The Earths energy balance and how we know global warming is occurring (Skeptical science)
-summaries several lines of evidence to show how we know the earth is warming due to greenhouse gasses.
Comparisons of emissions from different countries (Washington Post)
-shows levels of emission per country and per capita up to 2006. Australia is the 15th biggest polluter worldwide per total emissions and the 2nd biggest per person.
C02 abatement cost curve. Created by McKinsey and Co. Shows the "cost" and effect of various emission reduction strategies by 2030. Note that many ares especially in efficiency save money.
