The report warns that we have only twelve years to make global energy infrastructure changes. To help us make sense of the report, we have:

• Glen Tyler, SA Team Leader for 350.org (Global Grassroots Climate Movement)

• Dr Jim Taylor is an Associate of (Wildlife & Environment Society of South Africa)
