NASA has made an animation that shows how climate change might affect temperatures and rainfall on different parts of Earth.
It shows a scenario in which carbon dioxide concentrations reach 670 parts per million by 2100, up from around 400 ppm today.
Temperatures around the world are going to increase, but some parts of the world will increase more than others.
1. The Northern Hemisphere will see the most dramatic temperature increases.
2. Especially over the Arctic and typically snowy parts of North America.
3. Once ice and snow melts, it stops reflecting light away from Earth meaning the planet warms even more.
5. Land areas show the biggest warming, because evaporation can keep water cool.
6. And the oceans have the capacity to absorb more energy before heating up.
8. That’s going to stretch across the Pacific Ocean to Indonesia by the end of the century.
