NASA Climate Time Machine
- Interact with NASA’s predictive software that visualizes the changes in sea ice, sea level, carbon dioxide and global temperature from past to present.
- Storms intensified by climate change have damaged the Statue of Liberty’s museum and infrastructure.
- Scientists estimate that the beach at the Kennedy Space Center has moved inland as much as 200 feet due to erosion.
- According to the NASA Climate Time Machine, a 3-foot rise in sea level would submerge New Orleans.
