Since it is Earth Day, I thought it worth noting that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has offered their strongest statement about the threat the climate change represents. Their newest report is grounded in scientific data and outlines the serious consequences of inaction.
I thought that this discussion on On the Media outlines some of the approach taken by the IPCC.
For more information, take a look at this book in the library’s collection Overheated : the human cost of climate change by Andrew T. Guzman.
On the Media: Case Closed (on Climate Change)
Description: A new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) not only presents dire evidence of global warming’s impact, it also offers a different narrative about who is at risk, putting humans at the center of the story. Brooke talks with science journalist Cristine Russell about the IPCC’s media-ready case.
