Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change

Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change (the IPCC Working Group III contribution to the 5th Assessment Report) was released April 13, 2014.

In a previous post we alerted you to the Working Group Two report on Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability (which very clearly stated the problem we all face).  Now, this latest IPCC report from Working Group Three assesses the options for mitigating climate change and their underlying technological, economic and institutional requirements (helping us to see possible solutions).  It's directed at policymakers, and highlights the need for international agreement on mitigation efforts. It's chock full of info about sources of energy, carbon in our atmosphere, renewable energy, the ethical dilemmas that result from climate change, options for industry, etc.

Some video statements really humanize the report as well. This is a good effort to improve communication of these reports to the public. What can we do to relate this informtion to our sites and our audiences?
