The Climate Group releases exclusive climate science briefings, ahead of its live broadcast with IPCC report authors
- 17 September 2013
LONDON: The Climate Group has written a five-part briefing series covering the basics of climate science, ahead of our live broadcast with authors of the anticipated IPCC report, which will be launched immediately before the invite-only transmission on Friday September 27, at Climate Week NYC 2013.
IPCC REPORT LAUNCH
On Friday September 27, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will release the first part of its Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), which will set the benchmark in the world’s understanding of the causes, impacts and potential solutions to climate change.
In partnership with the IPCC, we are hosting an invite-only briefing event on the AR5 for our members and partners, featuring a live video link from Stockholm with some of the report’s authors, who will have concluded the report launch immediately prior to the broadcast. We will be live-tweeting from Climate Week NYC and an event summary will be available online afterwards.
The first half of the live-streamed event is available for the public to view. Watch the live briefing from 8.30am-9.10am EDT.
CLIMATE SCIENCE BRIEFINGS
Ahead of this critical event, The Climate Group has prepared a series of short, non-technical briefings about climate science. These briefings, which were available exclusively to members earlier in the month, cover the 'fundamentals' of climate change, observed climatic impacts, future climatic impacts, the work of the IPCC and short-lived climate pollutants.

Jim Walker, Co-founder and International Programs and Strategy Director, The Climate Group, commented: “For today's business and government leaders, an informed understanding of climate science and the IPCC’s findings should be a priority. In an unequivocally warming world, this knowledge is essential for the evidence-based decision-making necessary to protect the long term sustainability of communities and companies alike.
“We hope our briefings and live broadcast provide essential information around climate science; helping our members lead the path to a smarter, better, more prosperous future. For all.”To read the briefings, click on any of the buttons below.
