REPORTS AND PAPERS

30 years ago scientist James Hansen warned lawmakers in the Senate of the looming dangers presented by the global warming that humans were accelerating. 1988 was the same year that the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization formed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to report to world leaders on the science of climate change. Unfortunately, emissions grew in the US by 3.4% in 2018 (the biggest increase in 8 years).

A stunning timeline, following our extraordinary lack of progress from 1988 to 2018, was written by Paul Bledsoe and reprinted in the New York Times of December 29, 2018. Many of the reports and papers referenced in this article appear in this section of the CCR site.

Early in 2019 CarbonBrief published an article on which climate-change related papers were most featured in the media in 2018 based on data from Altmetric. The infographic below shows which ones made it into the Top 10.
