Why the new IPCC report is so important

View descriptionShare

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s latest report is out and it makes for sober reading. Published roughly every seven years, IPCC reports are the most established body of knowledge on climate change and unique in that their summary gets a signoff from every country on the planet. The report’s findings feature in everything from government policy to investment decisions. In this bonus episode, Akshat Rathi and Oscar Boyd talk about what the latest IPCC report says, and why it matters so much.

Read more about the latest IPCC report, about how one sentence in an IPCC report changed the climate game and about how IPCC reports become a showdown between science and global politics.
