The stripes are already having an impact. More than a million people downloaded graphics from the site within a week of its launch in 2019.
Television weather presenters, scientists and campaigners worldwide continue to wear and share them on social media – using the hashtag #showyourstripes – each June on the summer/winter solstice. The stripes have appeared on the Main Stage at Reading Festival, on badges worn by US senators, at school climate strikes, and on electric cars, trams and trains.
Previous images designed by Professor Ed Hawkins includes the animated 'climate spiral' of global temperature, which was used in the opening ceremony for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
