An Unequivocal Truth

Climate change is personal to Arizona residents, and few know this better than UA climate scientist, Jessica Tierney.

Climate change is personal to Arizona residents, and few know this better than University of Arizona climate scientist, Jessica Tierney. She is a lead author on the most recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, a United Nations body that is the world authority on our changing climate. This latest report is perhaps the starkest yet - laying out unequivocal evidence of the role that human activity plays in warming the planet. Tierney and her team examine what this might mean for Arizona, our life-giving monsoon season, and the ongoing drought.
