I'm the founder of FutureWork IQ where I spend my time assisting businesses to improve their climate literacy so as to understand the projected impacts from the expanding climate crisis and how to adapt their workplaces in the face of these impacts.

Now that climate literacy has become a critical business skill (on par with digital literacy) it is very important that leadership teams get accurate, up-to-date information from the worlds top scientific bodies.

For example, on Tuesday Copernicus ECMWF released their 2023 Annual Climate Summary

You can watch the press briefing, which features as always an important Q&A session here:

Today, Berkeley Earth, NASA, NOAA and the UK Met Office release their data.

The NASA/NOAA press briefing will be broadcast here:

The meticulous analysis of the data collected by the instruments we use to track our natural world, the satellites, weather ships, Argo floats, weather balloons, weather stations etc. provide us with an accurate understanding of the trajectory we are on and inform the climate models we use to understand the future better.

All this is critical to manage risks, help us create adaptation strategies and very importantly, understand what actions are necessary to prevent an already bad situation from getting much worse.

We have the data, we have the understanding, now it’s up to leadership teams to step up and act on this information.

The clearer your understating of our predicament the more prepared you will be for the unfolding climate disruption
