This week on Sustainable Idaho we interviewed Dr. Glen Thackray, a professor of geosciences at Idaho State University and he spoke with us about the IPCC report. The IPCC or Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is an international scientific body created in 1988 with the express purpose of providing policymakers across the globe with an assessment on the scientific basis of climate change and its effects on the environment and economies Their most recent assessment was published on February 28th of this year and we asked Dr. Thackray to break the report down.
