As part of a multi-year global climate change assessment process, Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seeks to assess the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, negative and positive impacts of climate change, and options for adapting to it…. But why should we believe what these scientists tell us? As lead author of Working Group II, Dr. Libby Jewett can shed light on the integrity and hard work, as well as the challenges, that are key to developing this high-profile report. In this seminar, Jewett will discuss the rigorous process and extensive scientific review through which Working Group II’s report must pass prior to its expected release in 2022.
Presented by Dr. Libby Jewett, Director of NOAA Ocean Acidification Program
