Climate experts can be hard to understand.

When they say PPM, BAU, or SLR, they expect everyone to know what they mean. They can translate 2 degrees Celsius to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit without missing a beat. They often seem to have their own language.

Analogies can be helpful: ask the experts to explain things in a way you will understand. And, look for humor. It’s there.
