Hawkins Warming Stripes on the roof of the German Maritime Museum

Climate change is currently one of the most important and most discussed problems of mankind. Whether it is the coal phase-out or the Fridays for Future movement: the issue has never been so high profile in the media and in research. The 25th World Climate Conference (COP 25) will take place in Madrid from 2 to 13 December 2019. The motto is #TimeForAction. In keeping with this motto, the German Maritime Museum / Leibniz Institute of Maritime History is presenting the special exhibition "SEA CHANGES - World & Sea in Transition", which focuses on the influence of climate change on the planet sea and highlights the enormous effects on polar regions, shipping and ecosystems.

A frequently used motif of the Fridays and Scientists for Future demonstrations are the Warming Stripes by British climatologist Ed Hawkins. These show the increasing warming of the climate since 1850 and the bar code indicates the average temperature of the world's climate. The Warming Stripes are also part of the moving image projection on the roof of the German Maritime Museum in Bremerhaven (westermann kulturprojekte with Kurt Laurenz Theinert). The media installation accompanies the new special exhibition daily from dusk from 5 pm to 10 pm.
