Two IPCC climate scientists in TIME's 2022 100 Most Influential persons list

New Delhi, May 24 (TIWN): Two climate scientists - Valerie Masson-Delmotte and Panmao Zhai, who were involved in a recent important Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, are part of the TIME Magazine's list of 100 Most Influential People for 2022 announced on Monday.

While Masson-Delmotte is a French climate scientist and Research Director at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, where she works in the Climate and Environment Sciences Laboratory (LSCE), Zhai is a Chinese meteorologist and Secretary-General of Chinese Meteorological Society.  "TIME's list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world is out. We're honoured that our WGI Co-Chairs, @valmasdel & Panmao Zhai who co-led the report on the physical science basis of #climatechange are part of the #TIME100 (sic)," the IPCC tweeted.  To which, Masson-Delmotte replied with joy and humility as she marked an emoji of Namaste before her tweet. "I am very glad that Panmao and I, together, can give a face to the extraordinary work to assess and communicate the state of knowledge for our changing climate, related risks, and options for action."  Sounding Code Red for humanity, one of the most important messages of the AR6 WGI report released in August 2021 is that climate change is already affecting every region of our planet, and every fraction of additional warming will increasingly affect every region in multiple ways.
