Despite the fact that +97% of climate scientists agree that climate change is not only real, but likely due to human activities, many people still refuse to believe that Earth is getting warmer. Some of these people are our leaders and law-makers.

This is why I have crocheted a blanket showing the rise in global temperature over the last 130 years, using data provided by the NASA Goddard Institute of Space Studies.

Each hexagon represents a year. The colors represent the deviation from the mean (average) temperature from 1951 to 1980, shown by the green border, i.e. how much cooler or warmer each year has been compared to the mid-century average.

This blanket is made with granny hexes in the join-as-you-go method.
