In tune with both societies’ missions “to promote the use of science to benefit society and to inform critical policy debates” the freely downloadable booklet also uses charts, graphs, maps, and images to give insights into basics like the greenhouse effect, atmospheric CO2 concentration, global temperatures since 1850, and future temperature projections. It closes with a list of other publications by the two academies and websites that provided climate data for this publication.
