Listen to the Science! The IPCC Report on Urgent Climate Action

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has now published the synthesis report of its sixth assessment report (AR6). This forms the final part of the sixth assessment cycle, which kicked off in 2015. For eight years, the experts analysed thousands of scientific publications, in order to make it easier for people like us and also policy makers to understand global warming, as well as solutions on how to tackle it. As the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, describes it, the climate time-bomb is ticking, and the IPCC report is a how-to guide to defuse the climate time-bomb. It is a survival guide for humanity. We speak to two experts, Professor Jim Skea CBE (Co-Chair, Working Group III, IPCC) and Prof Dr Joy Jacqueline Pereira (Principal Research Fellow, SEADPRI-UKM and Vice-Chair, Working Group II, IPCC) about the synthesis report, and why it is a fundamental policy document to shape climate action during this pivotal decade.
