The unequivocal climate emergency

USU Associate Professor Dr. Robert Davies interviewed via Zoom August 18, 2021

Humans are warming the planet, that warming is triggering extreme weather events and other detrimental outcomes, and “unless there are immediate, rapid and large-scale reductions” in greenhouse gas emissions, things will get much worse. Those are among the findings of the latest United Nations report assessing the scientific knowledge on climate change.

The document, titled “Climate Change 2021: the Physical Science Basis,” from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the result of the collective effort of 234 authors from 66 countries and is the most comprehensive review of the physical science to date.

Today on “In the Hive,” we delve into the IPCC report and its implications for Utah and the globe.

Guest:
Dr. Robert Davies, Associate Professor at Utah State University
