Visualizing Climate Change
Each line in the barcode represents a single year’s temperature and spans from earliest recorded date to latest, left to right.
The result is a set of beautiful, barcode-like visualizations organized by Ed Hawkins, of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) at the University of Reading, to give a clear perspective of the global rise in temperature.
The image here represents the change in global temperatures covering 1.35°C (source).
