Reports released by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) can be daunting, even for science and policy insiders. The full Physical Science Assessment, the first installment of the Fifth Assessment Report, released in manuscript form earlier this year, is over 2,000 pages long.

And even the Summary for Policymakers, rather optimistically referred to as a "brochure," is a dense 27 pages.

Imagine what it would be like if we could communicate the essence of this important information in plain language and pictures. Well, that's just what one Northwest oceanographer has done. He's distilled the entire report into 19 illustrated haiku.

The result is stunning, sobering, and brilliant. It's poetry. It's a work of art. But it doubles as clear, concise, powerful talking points and a compelling visual guide.

We are delighted to share Gregory Johnson's beautiful meditation as a Flashcard. You can also download it as a DIY booklet, PDF presentation, or slideshow video from our blog at http://bit.ly/1cH9Yx1.
