Richard Somerville is a scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. He recently presented at the Aquarium of the Pacific Climate Forum 2016, which focused on the topic of communicating about climate change.

At the forum he showed a slide summarizing 1500+ pages of the most recent IPCC reports (the IPCC is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). I love this slide: it really boils everything down to some very simple and easy to understand points.

Climate change is difficult to communicate: it’s an incredibly complex issue consisting of multiple, overlapping scientific fields and concerns. This list focuses on the most important findings that are important for people in understanding how climate change will directly impact our lives.
