Climate Change and the State of Science

This is a really nice video funded by the UN Foundation and produced by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and Globaia. It combines a range of impressive data visualisations depicting the human impacts on our environment with a clear commentary. The result is a powerful communication of the most significant statements in the Intergovernmental lipitor Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) recent Fifth Assessment Report, (Working Group I summary for policymakers, the Physical Science Basis). It is also an excellent example of the ways in which many of the developments in data visualisation are being harnessed to inform both the public and policy makers about significant issues.
