Warming Stripes

Vertical stripes, from blue on the left to red on the right, showing increase in annual temperatures in Wales

These are the warming stripes for Wales from 1884 to 2019. Very worrying.

There is a #ClimateEmergency and the rate of change is incredibly fast. To illustrate this, climate scientist Ed Hawkins from University of Reading has created a graphical representation of the rate of change, called warming stripes.

He has also created a website called showyourstripes.info where you can download the graphic for your country. Use the hashtag #ShowYourStripes and help spread awareness.
