The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) just completed the Fourth Assessment Report on Climate Change entitled: Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. This international conglomeration of governments and esteemed scientists from around the world continue to document why the world needs to get off its collective butt to mitigate climate change. If we don’t, the cost of adapting is going to be much greater and disruptive to societies.
The next two reports, due out later this year, will start to address the harder issues: policy to actually do something. It’s about time.
