Can't Take the Heat
From Doom to Action with the IPCC AR6 Report
Show Notes

As world leaders gather at COP26, we discuss the report that underpins it all.  The IPCC released part 1 of its Sixth Assessment report on our physical understanding of climate change. I spoke with two IPCC authors, Dr.  Sonia Seneviratne of ETH Zurich, and Dr. Fredi Otto of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment, to find out what the headline messages are, and what they mean for the humanitarian community. The findings, in some cases are grim, and we discuss how to go from doom and despair to the inspiring action that is desperately needed on climate change. Shu Liang from Day of Adaptation, joins us to share how her organisation uses games to make the science more accessible and actionable.
