Climate Change and Us: What does the future hold?
Climate change is not slowing down and humans are a major factor in its acceleration. That’s the main gist of the fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment, published in September 2013. Beyond the headlines, though, what does the report really say about the magnitude of climate change and humankind’s relationship with it? How does the IPCC go about producing these assessments and for what purpose? And, perhaps most importantly, what can we do to ensure a hospitable climate that supports health and opportunity for the future of life on Earth?
