On 27 September 2013, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) releases the Fifth Assessment Report of its working group on the science of climate change. Thousands of scientists from the world’s leading research bodies, including the CSIRO, together with thousands more expert reviewers, contribute to the assessment of climate science by the IPCC. The reports of the IPCC set the context in which international climate negotiations take place, national climate policy is developed, and many firms make long-term investments.
Ahead of the report’s release we interviewed 20 climate scientists from the Unversity of New South Wales, University of Melbourne, Monash University and CSIRO to find out how we can close the gap between the science and public opinion.
