The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the U.N.'s body for assessing the science related to climate change, recently released a large-scale report, "Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability." Farhana Sultana, associate professor of geography and the environment, was a guest on the Sustain What webcast to discuss the report, which warns of major immediate human and environmental costs and mounting long-term losses if more is not done both to cut emissions of greenhouse gases and cut vulnerability to heat, drought, illness, flooding and other climate-linked hazards in countries and communities most in peril.
