Climate Change is Real

[ Edited ]

The facts have been presented time and again, year after year, for decades and yet there is still an astounding level of willful ignorance and inaction from the people who should be doing the most to protect us and every other living thing on this planet.

Here are the facts, one more time. 

 

o Tell us about one decision you made when building the report, for example why did you use certain colors, visuals or features in Power BI?

One decision I had to make was to either have multiple pages, or use bookmarks to create a navigation experience through independent topics. Since I wanted to keep the storyline strong, I did not want too many independent pages that make the experience seem cumbersome. The bookmarks feature was of great help in this case. It kept the story alive and also made navigation easy.

 

o Why were you interested in telling this story?

Why was I interested in telling this story? Because it is something we cannot ignore. Climate Change is a fact that has been known for well over 100 years and yet we want to believe that it is a hoax. Climate Change is our biggest environmental problem and if we don’t act on it now, it will be too late. It is not a far-off problem. It is happening right here, it is happening right now.

 

o Where did you get the data? Is there anything not explained in the report about the data that the reader should be aware of?

This data has been taken from various websites (Listed below). Most of the data has been taken from government websites and the report does justice to all the data present. Some data manipulations may have been made (Like only considering a subset of the main dataset etc.)

I hope this dashboard presents the truth because no matter how much contrarians try to cloak reality, the evidence is not going away.

 

Thank you.

Hey Ravali

 

It is a stark depiction of the fact that our climate is indeed worsening. People need to realise that each of their actions have impact on the climate. Most people are of the opinion that climate damage is caused by factories and vehicular pollution alone. They need to realise that minor actions by each induvidual contributes to the overall climate change. Burning of plastics, unmanaged disposal of inorganic waste, not recycling waste, usage of aerosols, cutting trees in their backyards, oil and petroleum spills on to stormwater drains,etc are some of the common primary sources of environmental degradation.

Hope your dashboard makes people realise that finally it is them who will face the effects of climate change.

Re: Climate Change is Real

very nice !

Climate change is everyone's concern.

Power BI is a great tool to show us how dangerous and critical the situation is.

 

Another good dashboard :

Hi

Your work is great. How can I see the other sheets when I download this pbix file in power BI desktop. I want to see the other by clicking on the arrow I am unable to move forward.

Hey you really did a great work. Just a question, how can you create a timeline slicer or something in the right top?
