A Few Degrees More

For years, scientists have been warning about the rise in global tem-peratures as a result of the man-made climate crisis. The defined cli-mate targets have already been reached or even exceeded on a local level. Yet, despite these dire warnings, there has been little in the way of effective action or a step change in society.

Why? Perhaps data and numbers alone are simply too abstract.

The consequences of global warming pose a grave threat to all of hu-manity, regardless of where we live – including here. The balance of nature underpinning our civilization is teetering on the brink. The Museum Starnberger See has joined an initiative of the Leopold Museum in Vienna and the Climate Change Centre Austria. Selected nature paintings in the exhibition Licht und landschaft have been tilted to illustrate the possible rise in temperature in the region.

Angular degrees correspond to degrees Celsius.

The underlying data was provided by the Bavarian State Office for the Environment. The explanations were developed in collaboration with the research network Climate Change Centre Austria.
