This is the definitive source for information on the scientific basis of climate change, circa 2007. As with all IPCC assessment reports, only 'established science' can be included, which means that the latest scientific results are generally not included (this policy has advantages and disadvantages, the primary advantage is that the science presented in IPCC reports is unlikely to be contested or refuted by later research).
Note that all IPCC reports are available as individual pdf files at:
