The first part of this video is made using unaltered composite satellite images from NASA. The second part uses those same images combined with data from the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) regarding projected warming of Earth and the shrinking arctic ice cap.

The combination of NASA and GFDL data produces the remarkable effect you see in this video. COP21 in Paris is our opportunity to reverse course, slow climate change and ensure a better future for our species - arthtoparis.org
