Global Warming Research
The IPCC in Action:
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is among the loudest voices in the research community surrounding global warming and climate change. They are a well-established panel, and in their association with the UN they have received international acclaim
- as co-winners of the Nobel Peace Prize this year with Al Gore - and as a generally unbiased and accurate source of information on the topic. With authors from 130 countries, the panel represents a well-rounded international scope on the potential threat of
climate change, and has been around since 1988.
Below are compiled links of the newest and most relevant information compiled by the IPCC on global warming for your reading pleasure. While wordy and filled with a lot of scientific jargon, these reports are a good place to start if you have any
scepticism about the occurrence of anthropogenic climate change.

We've all heard there's a growing hole in the ozone layer, so how does the IPCC want to protect it from further damage? Check out the link below to find out.
Methodological and Technological Issues in Technology Transfer
Ever wondered how we will change our infrastructure from oil and gas based to alternative energy based? Well, this report takes a look at the political, economic and environmental logistics of the switch.
So what's causing our climate to warm? The IPCC takes a look at the greenhouse gases causing the warming of our atmosphere.
