The White House has said little about a major report released Monday by the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which concluded that greenhouse gas emissions are raising global temperatures more quickly than once thought and that without aggressive action to curb emissions, severe consequences of climate change will be felt by 2040.

Duke University earth sciences professor Drew Shindell, one of the report's co-authors, joins Here & Now's Lisa Mullins to discuss the Trump administration's response.

This segment aired on October 9, 2018.
