Climate Change Control Technology
"The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was set up jointly by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme to provide an authoritative international statement of scientific understanding of climate change.
The IPCC’s periodic assessments of the causes, impacts and possible response strategies to climate change are the most comprehensive and up-to-date reports available on the subject, and form the standard reference for all concerned with climate change in academia,government and industry worldwide.
Key "policy-relevant" questions to keep track of:
- How has the science of climate change advanced since the IPCC began?
- What is known about the natural and anthropogenic agents that contribute to climate change, and the underlying processes that are involved?
- How has climate been observed to change during the period of instrumental measurements?
- What is known of palaeoclimatic changes, before the instrumental era, over time scales of hundreds to millions of years, and the processes that caused them?
- How well do we understand human and natural contributions to recent climate change, and how well can we simulate changes in climate using models?
- How is climate projected to change in the future, globally and regionally?
- What is known about past and projected changes in sea level, including the role of changes in glaciers and ice sheets?
- Are extremes such as heavy precipitation, droughts, and heat waves changing and why, and how are they expected to change in the future?"
