#ShowYourStripes. “These ‘warming stripe’ graphics are visual representations of the change in temperature as measured in each country over the past 100+ years. Each stripe represents the temperature in that country averaged over a year. For most countries, the stripes start in the year 1901 and finish in 2018. For the UK, USA, Switzerland & Germany, the data starts in the late 19th century. […] For each country, the average temperature in 1971-2000 is set as the boundary between blue and red colours, and the colour scale varies from +/- 2.6 standard deviations of the annual average temperatures between 1901-2000.”

It’s interesting to see how the average temperature for the globe is much more dramatic than any of the smaller areas I chose.

Quote of the Day — Czech President Vaclav Klaus

The relationship between his activities and world peace is unclear and indistinct. It rather seems that Gore’s doubting of basic cornerstones of the current civilization does not contribute to peace.
