“Meteorologists United on Climate Change” #MetsUnite
Join your fellow meteorologists from around the world on Thursday, June 21 as we send a united message on climate change: It’s real. It’s us. It’s serious. As expert science communicators it is our job to frame the climate change message in a clear, simple and memorable manner.
There could not be a more simple message than the “Warming Stripes” visualization created by Professor Ed Hawkins, University of Reading, UK. Each stripe represents the yearly global temperatures from 1850 to 2017, clearly showing the trend from blue (below normal) to red (above normal).
To make it easy, the warming stripe pattern has been turned into items like a tie, a necklace and a coffee mug, among others here… https://www.zazzle.com/climate_change/products
