Two climate scientists – Valerie Masson-Delmotte and Panmao Zhai, who were involved in a recent important Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, are part of the TIME Magazine’s list of 100 Most Influential People for 2022 announced on Monday.

Masson-Delmotte and Zhai, Co-Chairs of the Working Group I of the Sixth Assessment Report of the IPCC released in 2021, have helped establish the physical science basis of climate change as part of the AR6 WGI report.

While Masson-Delmotte is a French climate scientist and Research Director at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, where she works in the Climate and Environment Sciences Laboratory (LSCE), Zhai is a Chinese meteorologist and Secretary-General of Chinese Meteorological Society.

“TIME’s list of the 100 Most Influential People in the world is out. We’re honoured that our WGI Co-Chairs, @valmasdel & Panmao Zhai who co-led the report on the physical science basis of #climatechange are part of the #TIME100 (sic),” the IPCC tweeted.

To which, Masson-Delmotte replied with joy and humility as she marked an emoji of Namaste before her tweet. “I am very glad that Panmao and I, together, can give a face to the extraordinary work to assess and communicate the state of knowledge for our changing climate, related risks, and options for action.”
