The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN Body, is releasing the first of three major reports on climate change on September 27th, it's first comprehensive reports since 2007. The first report, Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis, is the culmination of work of 259 authors from 39 countries. Leading BC climate scientists and senior contributors to the report will make sense of the IPCC assessment process,  what is new in climate science and the implications for BC.

Join us to learn the state of climate science—why and how the climate has changed and how it could change in the future—and what it all means for BC. There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience; the public and media are welcome.

Please check the poster for more details. 

The event is sponsored by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions and the Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium.
