Climate Warming Stripes powerfully illustrate the rise in average temperature. Each stripe represents one year and the color corresponds to whether the temperature was warmer than (red) or cooler than (blue) the long-term average. Climate Central’s Climate Matters team makes it possible to access stripes graphics for nearly 200 cities, 49 states.
