In August 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published their long-anticipated report on the “physical science basis” for climate change.
The report concluded that climate change is “unequivocally” caused by humans and already affecting every region on our planet. These findings were reported around the world, drawing international attention.
The mammoth 2,500-page document brings together an enormous volume of peer-reviewed literature to provide the most up-to-date summary of climate science yet published. Every statement in the report is backed up by authoritative sources.
Altogether, the report boasts a staggering 13,500 citations.
Our analysis explores which citations were included in the report and reveals a surprisingly broad and diverse range of topics.
However, it also shows that citations in the report are heavily dominated by the global north and commonly sit behind a paywall.
We found that 99.95% of the cited references were written in English and three-quarters of all literature cited in the report featured at least one author based in either the US or the UK.
