The increasingly acute impacts of climate change are felt everywhere. From hurricanes, to flooding, to severe droughts, to wildfires, and extreme heat, all regions are impacted. The most recent IPCC report noted that certain planetary changes, for example sea level rise, are now irreversible for up to millennia. Without intense ambition and coordinated action, the consequences of a warming planet will further compound as ecosystems suffer, drinking water supplies shrink, people are forced to migrate, and health outcomes decline. In this session, leading climate scientists Dr. David Schimel and Dr. Kimberley R. Miner will share insights into the latest climate science, the additional risks we face as we head towards dangerous tipping points, and their messages to governments, the private sector, and civil society.
