Does the enormously complex issue of #climatechange have to be presented to policymakers, and therefore the public, as the behemoth it really is?

Today I released my second #infographic explainer on the @IPCC_CH #AR6 reports.…

#SummaryForPeople 🧵
The amazing @skepticscience is even featuring it today, with added commentary, a real honour for a mere student of scientist.…

@theresphysics @BaerbelW @johnfocook @KenCaldeira
So, what does this, the longest explainer I've made yet, actually say?

Like the first edition —… — it kicks off with context about how we arrived at #IPCCAR6, on the @IPCC_CH itself and how it goes about communicating uncertainty.

#OnThisDay a year ago the @IPCC_CH released its report on #climatescience. Governments endorsed then largely ignored.

How do we get IPCC summaries across to apes with smartphones, especially those roaming corridors of power for whom they're intended? 🧵…
With much difficulty. But visuals help. They not only steal attention, they have the ability to go directly into long-term memory where they're indelibly etched.

@KateRaworth @waitbutwhy @jamespeshaw
Hence why I made a belated #explainer of the first #IPCCAR6 report, the first of three I'll publish before #COP27.

Better late than never, esp. when the next IPCC compendium won't drop until ~2030, the year when interim carbon-cutting pledges should be being met.

1/n Vor 2 Jahren hielt ich diesen Vortrag beim @chaosupdates. Damals sprach ich darüber wie unsere Zukunft aussehen "könnte", was passieren "würde". Und plötzlich ging alles sehr schnell: einen Monat später begannen DIE Buschfeuer in Australien.
2/n Seitdem brechen Feuer, Hurricanes, Überflutungen, Starkregen, Hitze, Dürren, Todesopfer, Ernteausfälle und die Höhe der wirtschaftlichen Schäden ein Rekord nach dem anderen. Was passieren "würde" ist eingetreten und die Welt kommt nicht mehr zu Ruhe.
3/n Spätestens seit dem #IPCCAR6 findet auch die Wissenschaft endlich, endlich deutliche Worte dafür. Die Dinge sind nicht mehr "likely to happen" sondern "virtually certain".

Our reponse to the IPCC AR6: Scientific establishments are starting to say what climate activists have been saying for decades: we are beyond the precipice, our only hope is a political revolution.
Climate tipping points are already breached, our weather violently disturbed, our food supplies at risk, our water endangered, our homes threatened, and our prospects for survival under siege.
Terrifyingly - this is the conservative view, the inescapable reality wrapped in a soft and agreeable tone. The truth is we have been murdered in our sleep, our futures stripped and sold like assets, gambling chips in the games of billionaires.
