Climate Change 2007 Report

Posted by lrath on February 2, 2007

On February 2nd, the Intergovernmental Panel on Global Change (IPCC) announced global warming is most likely caused by human activity. Their report “describes progress in understanding of the human and natural drivers of climate change, observed climate change, climate processes and attribution, and estimates of projected future climate change.” This will most likely be an important document for governments and policymakers, and will impact business operations.

The Climate Change 2007: The Physical Science Basis: Summary for Policymakers report is available on the IPCC website.

The IPCC was established by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Their role is to “assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant to understanding the scientific basis of risk of human-induced climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.”
