This is a remix of the Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC AR5), the most comprehensive report on climate change ever produced.The report is dense. Stacked it is about half a meter tall. Its convincing conclusions sometimes come with potentially frightening consequences.

In Guide to Global Weirding used daily data from climate simulations. We have trawled a thousand pages looking for regional impacts. We have processed a 160.000 line spreadsheet with data from economic models reacting to future political plans to limit greenhouse gas emissions. All this has been compressed to a short presentation that we hope anyone can understand and take in.

We try to show what our future might look like if we take the IPCC AR5 Report and its conclusions seriously. And what it will take to get to a future in which we avoid dangerous climate change. On to this rad visualization!
