Climate Impacts are Overwhelming

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported last year that climate impacts are overwhelming – the full report is available online.

I am reminded of Thay’s first answer in his March 2012 Q& A interview on Climate Change. He said that,

We have to breathe deeply to acknowledge the fact that we humans may disappear in just 100 years. And we have to learn to accept that hard fact. We should not be overwhelmed by despair. The solution is to learn how to touch eternity in the present moment.

The role of the working group two of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is to assess what’s known and what’s not known in the scientific body of literature about impacts of climate change, what are the physical changes that have occurred, and will occur in the future,  what’s the vulnerability. who susceptible to harm and why. In adaptation what can be done to cope as effectively as possible with the climate changes that can’t be avoided.
