Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

ABSTRACT:

Last September the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released its Fifth Assessment Report titled Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis. One of the major conclusions of the Report prepared by more than 800 contributing authors from 32 countries is that human influence on the climate is clear and it is evident in most regions of the globe. Thomas Stocker of the IPCC will share the results of the Fifth Assessment Report on the science of climate change, global trends and the potential implications of the IPCC's research.
