Why we haven't read the IPCC/GIEC report 🔥

Let's be honest, none of us have.

On one hand, it's about three times the length of the Bible.
On the other, it might also be one of the most important pieces of writing of our generation.

The thing is, nobody is supposed to read it, the same way that you are not supposed to read an encyclopædia cover to cover.


However, it is well worth it to read the summary for policymakers (if only to skim through the graphs), or to read one of the available summaries.
Firstly, because it’s interesting, secondly, because it makes it much easier to defend against anyone telling you that their grandpa experienced a really hot summer in 1947.


In any case, one thing seems probable: we will - and should - live on much clearer carbon budgets. 
Every SSP scenario we hope to reach has an associated global carbon stockpile available, and each of our actions makes that tally count down.

While our current carbon calculators are still quite primitive, it’s only a matter of time before we have the tools to make our contribution to those budgets explicit for all.


Whatever you do, maybe don’t go buying a house in the Mediterranean region if you plan to be around in a few decades
