As Nicole Burton began thinking about how to draw our story she doodled this.

When I shared this doodle with IPCC fan club member email subscribers I also told them

As you know, the graphic novel we’re working on explains why the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is such a phenomenal achievement.

Spencer Weart is a renown science historian and author of The Discovery of Global Warming. He says that as designed the IPCC’s “constitution should have been (and perhaps was intended to be) a recipe for paralysis” but (as we know) the IPCC turned that “into a virtue: whatever it did manage to say would have unimpeachable authority” because virtually every qualified scientist and country in the world is part of the consensus.

Our storyline for the graphic novel is set 100 years in the future where kids are being taught about that amazing endeavor.
