Steve Easterbrook on the IPCC report

Over at the Azimuth blog, Steve Easterbrook has written a valuable series of eight posts summarizing the data and conclusions of the newest IPCC report (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis.)  Each post focuses on one point (and contains one and only one graph).

Here are links to the whole series:
  1. The warming is unequivocal.
  2. Humans caused the majority of it.
  3. The warming is largely irreversible.
  4. Most of the heat is going into the oceans.
  5. Current rates of ocean acidification are unprecedented.
  6. We have to choose which future we want very soon.
  7. To stay below 2°C of warming, the world must become carbon negative.
  8. To stay below 2°C of warming, most fossil fuels must stay buried in the ground.
