The United Nations established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988 to examine reports of human-induced changes in global temperatures. Since then, the IPCC has produced five major assessment reports, and several special reports on particular topics. This site is dedicated to Climate Change 2014: Mitigation of Climate Change, a report composed by IPCC in response to a request for a comprehensive assessment of the current science on climate change mitigation. Readers may start with the excellent 12-minute video that presents an overview of the different possibilities for mitigating climate change over the next 20 years, including renewables, nuclear energy, reforestation, and increased efficiency. The full 1,400-page report is also available for free download on the site. However, readers may wish to peruse the 33-page Summary for Policymakers, which presents the same information in a condensed and visually stimulating manner.
