The Agonizing Loveliness Of Global Warming MapsS

The maps over at GlobalWarmingArt are astonishingly fierce and beautiful, including this map showing the intensity of tropical storms. Other maps, below, show rising global temperatures and melting icecaps.

The Astronomy Picture Of The Day site featured one of these maps the other day, and it's easy to see why. They're startling and informative, but also eye-catching. They dramatize our nascent climate clusterfuck in a way that's hard to look away from.
