Explaining the New UN Climate Report (IPCC AR6)

  • Date: 20 March 2023

We’re releasing this episode a day early because today, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a major new report offering the most comprehensive accounting of climate science to date. It's the final report in the IPCC's Sixth Assessment series. One of the lead authors of that series, Dr. Stephanie Roe, also serves as WWF’s Global Climate and Energy Lead Scientist.



Stephanie joins this episode to explain how this report builds upon other recent climate assessments (1:21) and how the process of developing these reports actually works (3:34). She then shares some key takeaways from this report (5:40), and discusses whether a stable climate future is still achievable (12:40).
