Day 8: UN Scientists' Most Recent Findings in Climate Change

READ:

"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise." --Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac (1948)

LEARN:

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released their latest report on climate, considered "the world's most authoritative assessment on Climate Change". Watch this 90-second video explaining the importance of this report, and read further into the report.

For a more simplified breakdown of the report and the history of it, read a summary of the IPCC report, by Popular Mechanics.

Read the entire IPCC report.

REFLECT: 

All of this new data is likely to make the IPCC more confident than ever that human actions are driving climate change. What can you change in your day to day actions to reduce your role in driving climate change? What do you do to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community?
