Newsclick talks to D. Raghunandan from Delhi Science Forum about the 5th assessment report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that was released on 30th September 2013. Raghunandan highlights three major findings of the report. First, climate change is rapidly escalating and 95 per cent of climate change is human-induced. Second, sea level and sea temperatures are more reliable indicators of climate change than land surface temperatures. Third, despite number of several non-carbon dioxide climate change factors in the atmosphere such as methane and fluorocarbons, it is carbon dioxide which is the key determinant to climate change. Also, for the first time, the report talks in terms of carbon budgets or cumulative emissions instead of annual emissions of the countries.
Raghunandan also talks about the media campaign and controversies before the release of the climate change assessment report. He says that the “climate change deniers” who question science include Fox News and several extreme conservative news groups and think thanks around the world.
