3. Reacting to the IPCC Report

As a mature adult you should have now come to terms with the scientific facts presented in the IPCC Report back in August. Hopefully you have passed through at least four stages of grief; pain & guilt, anger & bargaining, shock & denial, and depression, and are now engaged in an upward turn, working constructively towards solutions, and hope.

In this third blog about the IPCC Report, and whilst waiting for the final Synthesis Report to be issued in October next year, we discuss what one can realistically do to solve this now irrefutable problem.

At a high level it really is very simple, ‘be prepared’ and ‘be efficient’.

To make like a scout and 'be prepared' you should systematically consider the risks and opportunities that are relevant to you under a number of scenarios. This might sound complicated but there are frameworks such as (eg: TCFD) and tools available (eg: Australian Resources) which mean you can be proactive in relation to your;

- Physical risks and opportunities;

e.g. fire, flooding, drought, disease, habitat change risks and opportunities.

- Transition risks and opportunities;

e.g. regulatory, supply chain, product & technology, litigation and reputational risk and opportunities.

To make like a Swiss engineer and “be efficient” (looking at you Patrick Jeannerat) it really is very simple;

- Own what you consume

- Consume less

- Consume better

To this end, a pursuit of carbon neutrality (or better) is most helpful because it will push you to take a hierarchical and systematic approach to improvement.
