United Nations IPCC Fights Global Warming with Good Information

The IPCC researches global environmental conditions and advocates for government policies to stop global climate change.

Governments must do more to fight global warming, spurred by a new U.N. scientific report and damage to nature that is already as frightening as science fiction, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in November, 2007. Ban singled out the United States and China, the world's top two emitters of greenhouse gases, which have no binding goals for curbs, as key countries in the process. He welcomed initiatives by both and urged them to do more.

Examples of Adaptation to Immediate Effects of Climate Change

  • Construction of walls to protect coasts from rising sea levels
  • Draining glacier-fed lakes in the Himalayas to prevent flooding of the villages below.
  • Smarter development
    • Building higher bridges
    • Planting drought-resistant crops
    • Replacing dirt roads with paved ones to prepare for increased rainfall
    • Relocation of entire communities

IPCC - Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Established by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to assess available scientific, technical, and social trends. www.ipcc.ch
