2050 Stripes

2050 Stripes is a multi-layer initiative to call for an urgent action against climate change.

Clima Stripes by Ed Hawkins of University of Reading (UK) were an impressive tool to communicate climate change effects. They show the increase in global temperatures from the 1900s represented with one stripe per year.

We would like to contribute by prolonging the stripes to 2050, using the +2ºC scenario.
