The show kicks off with a review of the climate news of the day. The IPCC authors join us at 12:15 US EDT.

Join host Andy Revkin of the Columbia Climate School in a live chat with authors of the vital third part of the 2022 assessment of global warming science and solutions from the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Part one laid out basic new climate science showing how humans are heating the planet. Part two described vulnerabilities, impacts and adaptation options. Part three gauges ways to slow warming and stabilize concentrations of greenhouse gases.

Report authors joining the chat are:
- Leon Clarke, who recently moved from the University of Maryland to direct work on decarbonization pathways at Bezos Earth Fund
- Felix Creutzig, head of the working group on Land Use, Infrastructures and Transport at Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change and chair of sustainability economics at Technische Universität Berlin
- Paulina Jaramillo, professor of engineering and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University
- Karen Seto, an urban and land-change scientist and the Frederick C. Hixon Professor of Geography and Urbanization Science at the Yale School of the Environment
