Digital tools used by arts and government to highlight climate change

Thanks to @artsthink for sharing this great video slide show tribute to Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me with an Ecology twist. Also thanks to @bridgetmck for blogging about a Google earth map showing what could happen to the world should average global temperatures rise by 4 degree Celsius.

The UK Government’s DECC unveiled their interactive map, developed in collaboration with the British Council, Met Office Hadley Centre and Google.

The interactive map is an innovative way of communicating the complex challenge of climate change. It features video entries from scientists from Met Office Hadley centre explaining their research. Impact circles highlight areas across the world that will suffer the most from the consequences of climate change. Follow @2degreelimit for the DECC’s tweets on this topic.
