A Journey through Climate History

 

Here is an interesting Climate Change Timeline with great graphics from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (icon pictured): 

A JOURNEY THROUGH CLIMATE HISTORY

Introduction

This timeline has been developed to show key events in the climatic history of the planet, alongside events in human history.

As our own existence is momentary in comparison with the Earth's, in this interactive the measure of time has been separated into epochs to help navigate and differentiate the enormously lengthy periods between the formation of Earth, around 4.5 billion years ago, through to the present day.

When the timeline first loads, you will be dropped in at 2009, looking back in time. To move through an epoch, click and drag the time arrow. To move from one epoch to another, simply click on their titles.
