We consider a low redshift (z<0.7) cosmological data set comprising megamasers, cosmic chronometers, type Ia supernovae and baryon acoustic oscillations, which we bin according to their redshift. For each bin, we read the value of H0 by fitting directly to the flat ΛCDM model. Doing so, we find that H0 descends with redshift, allowing one to fit a line with a nonzero slope of statistical significance 2.1σ. Our analysis rests on the use of cosmic chronometers to break a degeneracy in baryon acoustic oscillations data and it will be imperative to revisit this feature as data improves. Nevertheless, our results provide the first independent indication of the descending trend reported by the H0LiCOW Collaboration. If substantiated going forward, early Universe solutions to the Hubble tension will struggle explaining this trend. © 2020 American Physical Society.
