Explained: IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere


IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere Infographic


This is the first of many explainer graphics I’ll be presenting on future IPCC findings. Because there’s no other issue where the gap is wider between what’s politically acceptable and what’s scientifically necessary, much more visual climate change science is needed. Climate change is a timed test, and therefore, so is communicating climate change to the public and policymakers.

You can also read a short article accompanying this graphic on Pure Advantage — a NZ-based organisation which investigates and promotes opportunities for making New Zealand more prosperous.

If you’d like to use the above on your own site or in policy materials, please drop me an email — I’m more than happy to provide it in different formats.
