These are 'climate stripes' that represent how the Earth has changed in temperature from 1850 to 2018. Each stripe represents a single year and is coloured based on the difference between the average temperature for that year and the average temperature during 1971-2000. If the temperature is below that average, the bar turns blue, changing in density depending on how below it is. Likewise, higher, it turns varying shades of red. As you can see there is a very drastic increase of red towards the later years showing a sharp increase in temperature. It was created by a scientist to highlight what the climate crisis is causing in a way that makes it quite clear to understand without being crushed by the science itself. A movement started called #showusyourstripes brought this image out into the mainstream and is widely acknowledged as a symbol of proof that the climate crisis exists.
