Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Radio & TV Magazine and Parks & Travel Magazine, for this episode of Big Blend Radio’s Nature Connection show. On this episode, wildlife conservation expert Adam M. Roberts discusses the UN’s special climate change report, “Global Warming of 1.5<° C,” published by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The report confirms the need to maintain the strongest commitment to the Paris Agreement’s aims of limiting global warming to well below 2ºC and pursuing efforts towards 1.5ºC. The report also provides an assessment of the latest science on warming of 1.5ºC as opposed to warming of 2ºC. The difference between these two numbers, a mere half of a degree, may not sound like much. But the IPCC projects that a 2°C rise in the global average temperature would lead to worse global and regional climate impacts.

Featured music is ‘Loving the Land’ by Wally Lawder. Thank you to fine art nature photographer Margot Carerra for sponsoring this episode. See her fine art, nature and garden photography inspired gifts on Etsy.
