The IPCC climate report came with bad news - but great charts. The improved visuals have rightly been applauded by many in the dataviz community. Not least the impressive communication of uncertainty deserves a special mention.

In other climate news

Environmental inequity: The New York Times has done a really smart analysis of neighbourhoods’ median income and canopy cover (or lack thereof).

Another climate-related geographical analysis comes from the SF Chronicle, who’ve looked at how housing inaffordability is leading more and more Californians to move to fire zones.

Our sister company Newsworthy took a deep dive into how much worse heat waves are going to get by the end of the century, looking at the parts of Sweden that can expect to face greatest health risks, with a combination of many hot days and a large elderly population.

Tutorials

Ok Google, how do I learn data science? Data scientist Brooke Talbot analysed her own search history to find out what questions she was asking and when, and shared the code in this tutorial
