The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its latest assessment report on Monday detailing the most recent understanding of observed changes in the world’s climate. 

The authors of the report conclude that climate change is widespread and intensifying, and some of the observed changes, such as continued sea level rise, “are irreversible over hundreds to thousands of years.”

Duke University experts offered comments on the report for Duke Today, including:

  • Brian Murray, interim director of the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and Duke University Energy Initiative
  • Kate Konschnik, director of the Climate and Energy Program at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions
  • Jackson Ewing, senior fellow at the Nicholas Institute of Environmental Policy Solutions
