New podcast episode: What has happened since the IPCC Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C was released?

11 April 2019

Six months ago, the IPCC released the “Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C”. In this episode we discuss the transformations that need to happen, the topic of global justice and policy action. Are we on track? What has happened since its release?

Caroline Coch, Climate Science Specialist at RMetS, speaks to Joeri Rogelj, a lecturer at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and a Senior Research Scholar at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA). He gives some important insights into the carbon budget and what transformations need to happen to limit global warming to 1.5 °C.

She then speaks to Dr Alix Dietzel, a lecturer in Global Ethics at the University of Bristol. Alix speaks about moral responsibility in taking action against climate change.
Jolene Cook from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) gives more details on the process of the IPCC report and how it will be used by policymakers.

Finally, Prof. Martin Siegert, co-director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change explains how climate change in the past can inform us about climate change today. He takes a look back on what happened during the past six months since the report was released.
