"The largest, most detailed climate change report yet written was released
today, clocking in at 3,675 pages, written by 270 researchers for the United
Nations’ Intergovernmental Program on Climate Change (IPCC).
With the invasion of Ukraine justifiably dominating the news, the report may
not make many headlines. But it should cause you to lose sleep tonight,
especially if you have children, and even if you’ve been numbed by decades of
gloom and doom when it comes to global climate disruption.
In fact, as someone who’s been writing on climate change since 1998, I think
it’s the most important 3,675 pages published this century. Not because it will
influence the politicians in the pockets of the fossil fuel industry (i.e. the
entire Republican Party plus Sen. Joe Manchin) or those bamboozled by Fox
News—it won’t. It’s important because it stands as a record of what scientists
know to be true, and what our leaders have failed to bring about."
