by ‐ Tags: links

Whether you're looking to become a more informed citizen or just killing some time on a Friday, WegoWise has got you covered.

Back in September 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the first part of it's fifth assessment report (AR5), which reignited a much-needed conversation in the media about the impacts of climate change. This report, which will be finalized in October 2014, confirmed that humans are largely responsible for rising global temperatures (big surprise), the observed impacts are happening more quickly than expected, and that business-as-usual will lead us far beyond 2 degrees Celsius of warming. The IPCC turned twenty-five year recently, so we wanted to look back on the organization's history with an infographic and video produced by Nature
