If you want to have a more interactive look at climate, try the Climate from Space App. See the changes through time of sea surface temperature, sea level, sea ice, carbon dioxide, and many more. Play, pause, and go step by step through the years of data zoom in and use the buttons along the bottom to compare the data sets and switch beteen a globe and a map view.
