International Panel on Climate Change — 2014

Ciimate Change 2014: Synthesis Report distils and integrates all the findings of the Fifth Assessment Report of the International Panel on Climate produced by over 800 scientists in 2013 and 2014. This is the most comprehensive assessment of climate change ever undertaken.

The key finding is that human influence on the climate system is clear and growing, with impacts observed on all continents. If left unchecked, climate change will increase the likelihood of severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems. Options are available to adapt to climate change, and stringent mitigation activities can ensure that the impacts of climate change remain within a manageable range, creating a brighter and more sustainable future.
