It is the State of the World

It is the State of the World


Into the Warm(ing)

Hot off the presses (pun intended) is the Worldwatch Institute’s essential annual State of the World report, this year focusing on the realities, rigors, and exigencies of climate change. Chapters address issues like energy, food, what it will take to seal a climate deal, and, interestingly, resilience. To launch the report, colleagues at Worldwatch organized a symposium with State of the World contributors and other climate and Earth luminaries. Among them, Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Wordwatch staff researchers. View video of the symposium here.
