The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change produces the authoritative 'assessment reports' on the state of knowledge on climate change, its causes, potential impacts and response strategies.

At the end of September, the latest report was published on the scientific basis of climate change.  Hear from a lead author of the chapter on sea level rise (Tony Payne), one of the contributing authors on past climates (Dan Lunt), and climate scientist Tamsin Edwards about what it is like to work on such an extraordinary document and how it should be used.  The discussion was chaired by Maggie Leggett, Centre for Public Engagement.  This event also had a Q&A session from members of the audience with responses from the panel and other scientists at the Cabot Institute including Dani Schmidt, Jo House and Rich Pancost.
