The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), of the U.N. has published three reports that show that humans are responsible for climate change, that the ability of humans and municipalities to adapt and live with severe weather is still possible if we act now, and that we have less than 2 and a half years to stop the rise of greenhouse gasses. Many are calling it the most stark warning yet.
Reset checks in with a climate scientist and an environmental reporter to understand these reports and the ways we can still stave off the worst.
GUESTS: Kristina Dahl, principal climate scientist for the Climate & Energy program at the Union of Concerned Scientists
