The Climate Change 2007 volumes of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provide the most comprehensive and balanced assessment of climate change available. This IPCC Working Group II volume brings us completely up-to-date on the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change. Written by the world's leading experts, the IPCC volumes will again prove to be invaluable for researchers, students, and policymakers, and will form the standard reference works for policy decisions for government and industry worldwide.

Contains many misstatements of facts and distortions, in particular statements of glaciers retreating at a rate such that they will be gone by 2035. This was proven to be an error.

This is the definitive source for information on the likely impacts 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:
