Interactive Global Warming World Map from Union of Concerned Scientists

The Sources of U.S. Heat-Trapping Emissions in 2008 (U.S. Energy Information Administration)
With the help of a Google Earth Outreach GeoChallenge Grant, the Union of Concerned Scientists launched an interactive Global Warming World Map. Here's the site: http://www.climatehotmap.org

Despite the fact that global warming has become a political football due to the efforts of those most responsible for causing it, the effects are being felt worldwide. I'm a little late (it came out months ago), but this map is a quick and easy way to understand the myriad of changes that are happening now, and an idea of future trends (and what can be done to change things).
