Global climate change is one of the most acute environmental problems facing humanity. According to forecasts of leading international research centers for climate research, over the next century the temperature will rise by 2-5 degrees Celsius. Such global warming will cause serious climate change and endanger various ecosystems.

Today it is safe to say that significant climate change is already taking place. We need to think and understand that humanity has no right to use the planet's atmosphere for pollution. If we do not take action, we will soon be approaching the point where it will no longer be possible to stop global climate change and life on the planet will be in jeopardy in the future. Moreover, modern forecasts of adverse meteorological phenomena indicate the need to take them as the norm today. There is a need to develop and implement an action plan for adaptation to climate change. Adaptation to global climate change is adaptation in natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climate impacts or their effects, which reduces harm and takes advantage of opportunities.

The main cause of climate change is the use of fossil fuels and inefficient consumption of energy produced. Greenhouse gases formed as a result of human activities cause an increase in the greenhouse effect. Excessive amounts of gases generated by CHP, transport, agriculture, industry, and forest fires retain solar heat in the lower atmosphere, preventing it from returning to space. The most noticeable consequence of climate change will be not only gradual warming, but "emergencies" such as severe droughts, floods, storms, hurricanes, extremely hot days that will occur more often. The level of the world's oceans will rise and ocean currents may change significantly. Mankind will face water supply problems and the degradation of agricultural land and forests.

Ed Hawkins, a climatologist at the University of Reading in the UK, has created a website that shows climate change in different regions and countries around the world. The aim of this project is to draw the attention of the world community to such a global environmental problem as climate change. For comparison, the period from 1901 to 2019 is taken. Visualization of changes is made with the help of graphs illustrating the growth of average temperatures over the last century.

Each band represents the average annual temperature on the planet, in a region or country. In almost every country or region in recent years, the bands turn blue to predominantly red, which begins a sharp rise in temperatures. The site also has images of temperature changes in Ukraine, where red stripes can not help but cause concern. With this graphic you can do absolutely anything - they are free to use! The visualization can be easily downloaded. The author of the site encourages to do so and share images on social networks with the hashtag #ShowYourStripes.Many people have already been involved in disseminating this information. By spreading information, people are implementing Ed Hawkins' idea: to raise human awareness of climate change on our planet. #Climitchange - here you can see the simultaneous change of temperatures of each country on the world map. Support this campaign: Disseminate information labeled #ShowYourStripes about this environmental issue. Only by changing our worldview and way of life can we repair all the damage that has been done to our planet.
