IPCC climate report- The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which is a group of top scientists and policymakers that convene every 5-6 years and produce a 3,000+ page report on climate change. They do this over a period of about a year and the first part of the 2013-2014 report came out early this morning. One key fact it pointed out is that there is a 95% chance humans are causing climate change. Dr. Jeff Masters has a great post summarizing this stage of the report. I encourage everyone, particularly those skeptical of climate change, to look at this article. It’s very informative and sheds light on some of the potential impacts that our energy consumption has on the planet and on civilization.
