Climate change data displays

Two useful displays of data showing climate change underway. First, remember how warm March felt? Here's a video using NOAA data to show visually the 15,000+ records that were broken in the US in March:

Second, here's a screenshot of a post from RealClimate ("Climate science from climate scientists") showing how recent earth temperatures have exceeded predictions from a paper published in Science in 1981. The grey is the original graph; the pink is the actual measurements.
I found both of these because I regularly follow James Fallows' terrific blog at TheAtlantic.com. He posted the second; the first was on the Atlantic's video channel.
