Join Times staff writer Tony Barboza for a L.A. Now Live chat Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. about the newest findings on climate change.
In his latest piece, Barboza reported that an international panel of scientists says climate change will disrupt not only the natural world but also society, posing risks to the world's economy and the food and water supply and contributing to violent conflict.
The warnings came in a report drafted by the United Nations-backed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The 29-page summary, leaked and posted on a blog critical of the panel, has been distributed to governments around the world for review. It could change before it is released in March.
Barboza will be online at 9 a.m. to discuss the implications of the report and answer any questions readers have.
