Summary for Policymakers: A Report of Working Group I of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change

On January 22, 2001, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued perhaps the most comprehensive and dire report to date on global warming and climate change. Over three years in the making, the full report includes contributions from 123 lead authors and runs over 1,000 pages. The report finds that global temperatures could rise as much as 10.5 degrees over the next century and that this is primarily the result of pollution. These findings were unanimously approved by about 150 scientists and 80 members of environmental and industry groups present at the IPCC Working Group I meeting in Shanghai. The full report is not available online, but the IPCC has posted a detailed eighteen-page summary for policymakers at its Website.
