The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) latest report, Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, provides another critical summary for policymakers on the growing threat of warming temperatures as well as the loss and damages that have already occurred. This is part two of its Sixth Assessment Report. Prof. Jörn Birkmann, one of the lead authors of the report, joins the show to discuss the IPCC latest findings, what it means for policymakers, and how the world needs to adapt to climate change, mitigate further climate risk, protect the most vulnerable communities around the globe, and recognize loss and damages.
Listen to our conversation here with IPCC lead author Dr. Ed Hawkins on part one of Sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis.
