Review quote

'This volume makes another significant step forward in the understanding of the likely impacts of climate change on a global scale.' International Journal of Climatology 'The detail is truly amazing ... invaluable works of reference ... no reference or science library should be without a set [of the IPCC volumes] ... unreservedly recommended to all readers.' Journal of Meteorology 'The subject is explored in great depth and should prove valuable to policy makers, researchers, analysts, and students.' American Meteorological Society '... structured in the well-established format of all former IPCC Assessment Reports ... will surely be the standard reference for ... arguments related with the science, the impacts, adaptation and vulnerability, and with mitigation and adaptation to global warming and climate change in the next years. It should not be missing in the libraries of atmospheric and climate research institutes and those administrative and political institutions which have to deal with global change and sustainable development.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift 'The IPCC has conducted what is arguably the largest, most comprehensive and transparent study ever undertaken by mankind ... The result is a work of substance and authority, which only the foolish would deride.' Wind Engineering '... the weight of evidence presented, the authority that IPCC commands and the breadth of view can hardly fail to impress and earn respect. Each of the volumes is essentially a remarkable work of reference, containing a plethora of information and copious bibliographies. There can be few natural scientists who will not want to have at least one of these volumes to hand on their bookshelves, at least until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey.' The Holocene 'It is no exaggeration to say that these publications are the encyclopaedia of the topic, drawing as they do on the work of several hundred scientists from all over the world.'
