Following the #ShowYourStripes trend on social media, we created our own for each Brazilian state. These graphs intend to highlight how temperatures change across Brazil since 1901. The color of each stripe represents the temperature anomaly for each year, from 1901 until 2012. Data were provide by Berkeley Earth. The idea of the “warming stripes’ graphs were created by Ed Hawkins, from the University of Reading, UK. Graphs for almost all countries in the world can be accessed at showyourstripes.info.
The main objective of these graphs is to raise awareness to the increase of temperature over the years, and they clearly show that. On the right, the graph also shows the evolution of the temperature for all states in Brazil, from North to South.
All graphs are free to use. We just ask that you acknowledge the Klimapolis Laboratory for producing them, and also use the hashtags #KlimapolisLab and #ShowYourStripes if you are posting them on Twitter or Facebook.
