3-D Visualization of Arctic Ice Loss

January 28, 2013

Andy Lee Robinson has updated his brilliant and clear 3-d visualization of Arctic Ice Volume  loss.

Andy writes me:

We’re starting the year with 1058km3 less sea ice than this time last
year. That’s around a trillion tonnes that won’t need to be melted this
year.

I used a previous version in last fall’s sea ice video – click here or see below.  You can see how a good graphic like this makes a deeper impression.

    Both superb visuals that communicate their rightfully scary message clearly. Graphs speak to me, so the first is good, but I think the presentation of the thick ice either being lost to the Atlantic or (escpecially in the last two years) melting out directly would be very effective to practically any audience.

    6,999,997,500 to go. Disappointing.

    The illustration could not be clearer, at least to me.
    The canary in the coal mine has mummified, and the ice is collapsing.

    If people really understood what this is saying, and the implications, then surely it would have gone viral by now?
    Why can’t more people get the message?
    What more do we need to do to make it sink in, besides waiting for ever increasing weather events to do it instead, when it may be too late to step back?

    Maybe I should inject some banal humour, cats, sex scandal, bikini shots, word puzzle or an unexpected zombie shock at the end…

    Open to ideas…

      don’t get discouraged, and don’t assume you have to have huge numbers to influence thought. The piano playing gerbil gets big numbers, but does not influence thought.
