New media and climate
The IPCC has released a video summarising the report of Working Group 1. It is up on YouTube and you can watch it above. To my knowledge the IPCC has not done this before, and efforts were made to get it done in a professional way. The production is technically sound and of high visual quality. There are beautiful pictures and sequences, even some interesting electronic chirpy sounds which makes it appear slightly arty, given the subject matter.
The question of course is, how well does this video communicate the central messages from WG1? What is the relation between pictures, sound, text and speech? And how well does it follow the IPCC's remit of being policy relevant but policy neutral?
I would like to see what readers of Klimazwiebel have to say after watching this.
