Thanks to digitalearth colleague Michaela for tip-off to this interactive map from the Washington Post which shows the predicted years when certain cities will begin to experience what is know as 'climate departure': when the climate can be seen as having changed from its previous state.

The interactive map would be a great resource for anyone teaching in this area.
This phrase is going to be significant in teaching about climate change too...
