Slide title: Global Average Temperature
Slide words: Projection of warming through 2100
Slide image: Climate Change Simulation, 1870–2100 map and graph. This is a still from an animation which depicts global surface warming as simulated by the NCAR-based Community Climate System Model (CCSM). It shows warming and cooling compared to average temperatures at the end of the 19th century. The map shows warming and cooling over the entire globe; the graph displays the global average temperature, year by year, which is going up.
