GLF Live with Youba Sokona

In a world that seems increasingly fragile, the Global Landscapes Forum is an organization that promotes solutions to climate change and human development, championing reasons to be optimistic about the future.
But in the third episode of our GLF Live mini-series of “climate crash courses” – 15-minute lessons on foundational climate change terms and topics – we’re putting our positivity aside for a moment to assess the climate crisis as realistically as possible. There are seemingly endless new reports on how global warming, disastrous weather events and biodiversity loss are happening more quickly than anticipated and slipping further from our control. But just how bad are things? Is there any chance of keeping temperature-rise in check? As countries gear up for another round of climate negotiations at COP27, are we generally on a path toward creating a livable future or furthering climate disaster – or are we on any clear path at all? In this conversation, we’ll hear from the vice-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the pre-eminent organization on climate science and knowledge, on where we really stand with climate change and what we can expect in the months and years to come.
