In climate news, nearly 100 on-air meteorologists will wear blue and red stripes as they go to broadcast today across the United States, in a coordinated effort to draw attention to the threat of human-caused climate change. The stripes are a reference to a “warming stripes” graphic designed by climate scientist Ed Hawkins, which shows global average temperatures as a series of vertical stripes covering the years 1850 to 2017. The graphic shows a shift from blue stripes to red, with the most dramatic increases in temperature coming in recent years.
