Researchers with Univeristy of Melbourne and the Australian National University in Canberra have created a simple way of visualizing the relationships between carbon dioxide, temperature, and climate. Taking 800,000 years of ice core data and  animating the measurements, they show in just 3-minutes how Earth's climate has changed as CO2 has increased or decreased over that vast stretch of time.

The climate science speaks for itself even if the data may be "inconvenient".
