How the warming stripes work

Each stripe represents the average temperature for a single year, relative to the average temperature over the period as a whole. Shades of blue indicate cooler-than-average years, while red shows years that were hotter than average. The stark band of deep red stripes on the right-hand side of the graphic show the rapid heating in recent decades.

What can we do?

As we know, the climate crisis is already here. The good news is that most of the solutions exist today. What’s really needed is more people to join in locally to make a bigger difference together.
