Intergovernmental panel on climate change delivers new report

The fifth assessment by the Intergovernmetal Panel on Climate Change is intended to serve as a reality check on the subject.


The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just released its fifth assessment report which provides a comprehensive look at the physical science basis of climate change. Here is a link to the full report and it serves as a bit of a “reality check.” It’s very appropriate this document was released at the same time as Cannon Design’s Environmental Awareness Week. In fact, Dr. Amber Jenkins, NASA will deliver her presentation, Our Changing Climate – A Global Perspective, today from our Los Angeles office. I encourage everyone to read the full report or the headlines statement document and remember our firm’s mission, “Together, we create design solutions to the greatest challenges facing our clients and society.”
