Climate Change Impact Information From the IPCC
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is an intergovernmental scientific body established to aggregate, review and publish scientific, technical and socio-economic information regarding climate change. This information is frequently provided in the context of the local and global impact of that change. You can learn more about the IPCC here.
Below you will find links the homepage for the IPCC site as well as to selected content provided therein.
