Map of warming

The Economist has a global map showing the likelihood of a place having a new "hottest summer on record" in the next several decades.  For instance, it looks like both Washington DC and Atlanta have a 70-89% chance of having a hotter summer than they've ever had. It is interesting to note that the map comes from a Food Security paper in Science - the implications could be frightening.
