Read This: TIME Devotes Entire Issue to Climate Change

This morning TIME magazine published a special issue devoted solely to the issue of climate change. Thirty years ago TIME published Endangered Earth, its first issue on the then-nascent climate crisis and now, in 2019, we’re thirty years from 2050–the year by which the IPCC says we must reach carbon neutrality. You can also head to time.com/2050 for some really awesome interactive pieces like a 3-D journey into the Amazon narrated by famed conservationist Jane Goodall.

What’s super cool about this edition: In TIME’s own words:

Notably, what you will not find in this issue are climate-change skeptics. Core to our mission is bringing together diverse perspectives. Experts can and should debate the best route to mitigating the effects of climate change, but there is no serious doubt that those effects are real.
