Seattle-based oceanographer Greg Johnson is usually processing data from Argo floats–instruments in the ocean that measure things like ocean temperature, salinity, and density. But after reading the 5th IPCC Report that was published in 2013, he found himself moved to summarize the key takeaways from the report in haiku poetry. He then illustrated those haiku with watercolors, resulting in a beautiful and concise visual guide to the extremely complex 2,000 page IPCC report.

The paintings and haiku were published by Sightline Institute as a PDF and short video.
