Future Earth and The Earth League, international organizations representing networks of global sustainability scientists, have issued a guide for climate negotiators, policymakers and the media that considers the latest findings in climate science at a time when increases in greenhouse gas concentrations are unprecedented and weather extremes have become the “new normal.” The guide titled, ‘10 New Insights in Climate Science,’ was presented during the 2019 UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid, Spain. It summarizes recent Earth-system science, policy, public health and economic research that aims to help achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
