IPCC Report's Sixth Climate Assessment Report Published Today (August 9th)

Listeners of this podcast are well aware I've spent considerable time discussing the climate crisis, i.e., have posted over 20 climate crisis-related podcast interviews.  Therefore, it is important to note the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) sixth climate assessment report was published today. 

Needless to say the report's findings are dire.  For example, about the report the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, stated the report "is a code red for humanity," "the alarm bells are deafening . . . the evidence is irrefutable . . . greenhouse gas emissions . . . are choking our planet and putting billions of people at immediate risk."  

All report info is at: https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg1/#SPM.   Please note this page identifies a 42-page "summary for policymakers."   I also recommend reading today's coverage in The Guardian.
