IPCC FAQ Physical Science Climate graphics. by Nigel Hawtin
A digital version of the FAQ section of the Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis Repot. Published by the IPCC as part of its climate report 2021.
I was commissioned to produce graphics that would summarise each chapter of the full report in easy to understand and digestible single page graphics - helping the general public and non-scientists understand the complexities of climate data.
All graphics were co-developed with the team as well as authors of the report but it was me that ultimately produced them. A published study in Nature Climate on these figures showed that the graphics were far more successfully shared on social media compared to posts with only text or just generic photos.
