An international group of scientists concerned with understanding how Earth functions as a system has created a beautiful and terrifying visual summary of data collected by the United Nations’ climate panel to project how conditions on the surface of the planet will change in the next 100 years.

While watching the video below, viewers should bear in mind that forecasts given by the U.N. body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, are conservative due to the organization’s structure of consensus among a broad range of participating scientists. This practice means that there is a strong possibility that changes in temperature, sea level and other factors may be much greater than the group anticipates.
