The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has just released a 21 page
report summary for policy makers of a report entitled ‘Climate Change 2007 – The Physical Science Basis’ which will be released later in the year.
report summary can be downloaded here: http://www.ipcc.ch/ .
report summary has been the focus of intensive media interest for some days and according to the ABC has been described by WWF as a “clarion call to governments to act urgently to slash emissions” and by Greenpeace as a “screaming siren”.
It is unclear from the associated media release when the full report will be made available.
