How Dublin's temperature has changed over the last 270 years.
We came across these impressive ‘warming stripe’ graphics shared by Dublin City Council BETA earlier today, and we had to re-post!
These ‘warming stripe’ graphics are visual representations of the change in temperature as measured in each region or country over the past 100+ years. The idea has been developed by climate scientist @ed_hawkins using data from the Berkeley Earth, NOAA, UK Met Office, MeteoSwiss and DWD. More info at https://showyourstripes.info/
How Dublin's temperature has changed over the past ~270 years. The darkest blue is Dublin's coldest temperature during that time, the darkest red is Dublin's warmest.— Dublin City Council BETA (@DCCbeta) June 20, 2019
Thanks to @hausfath for this Dublin-specific version, and @ed_hawkins for the overall #ShowYourStripes approach. pic.twitter.com/eVwu6oHrfx
There’s also other variants - for example @alxrdk has created this #warningstripes version to show how future temperatures on our planet would be projected to play out depending on decisions in the near time. pic.twitter.com/S581vyuUHZ— Dublin City Council BETA (@DCCbeta) June 20, 2019
