Big data is a trend. Now even NASA want to tell you something interesting about another hot trend - global warming.

Welcome to the future! On image above you can see how will be temperature on the Earth on July 2099. Not good, right?

According to some climate test and 21 climate models level of CO2 will be about 900 parts on million at the end of the century. And this is bad, because it’s about 2x grow since today level (about 400 parts on million) and level of CO2 in atmosphere will be close to 1%. This is a lot of CO2 and very scary predict to all of us.

It’s obvious that such a large increase in temperature will lead to serious climate change will and frequent droughts, floods and other extreme weather events.

Let’s heard NASA:

This NASA dataset integrates actual measurements from around the world with data from climate simulations created by the international Fifth Coupled Model Intercomparison Project. These climate simulations used the best physical models of the climate system available to provide forecasts of what the global climate might look like under two different greenhouse gas emissions scenarios: a “business as usual” scenario based on current trends and an “extreme case” with a significant increase in emissions.

The NASA climate projections provide a detailed view of future temperature and precipitation patterns around the world at a 15.5 mile (25 kilometer) resolution, covering the time period from 1950 to 2100. The 11-terabyte dataset provides daily estimates of maximum and minimum temperatures and precipitation over the entire globe.
