The Climate Change 2007 volumes of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provide the most comprehensive and balanced assessment of climate change available. This IPCC Working Group III volume provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art and worldwide overview of scientific knowledge related to the mitigation of climate change. It includes a detailed assessment of costs and potentials of mitigation technologies and practices, implementation barriers, and policy options for the sectors: energy supply, transport, buildings, industry, agriculture, forestry and waste management. It links sustainable development policies with climate change practices.

Product Description

Review

From reviews of the Third Assessment Report – Climate Change 2001: '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

'… 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

'… likely to remain a vital reference work until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey … another significant step forward in the understanding of the likely impacts of climate change on a global scale.' International Journal of Climatology

'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to have at least one of these volumes to hand on their bookshelves, at least until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey.'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

'The subject is explored in great depth and should prove valuable to policy makers, researchers, analysts, and students.' American Meteorological Society

From reviews of the Second Assessment Report – Climate Change 1995: ' … essential reading for anyone interested in global environmental change, either past, present or future. … These volumes have a deservedly high reputation' Geological Magazine

'… a tremendous achievement of co-ordinating the contributions of well over a thousand individuals to produce an authoritative, state-of-the-art review which will be of great value to decision-makers and the scientific community at large … an indispensable reference.' International Journal of Climatology

'... a wealth of clear, well-organized information that is all in one place ... there is much to applaud.' Environment International

'This is the third of three magisterial volumes describing the state of art in climate change research. The first two deal with the physical science basis and impacts, adaptation and vulnerability, while this volume focuses on possible measures of mitigation. It is a quite extraordinary publication in its range of depth and detail.… As a reference work, it will surely remain unsurpassed until the next edition comes out in due course.' Network Review

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Resource on Climate Change 16 Mar 2009
By Glenn Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The IPCC Climate Change reports once every five years are the absolute definitive resource for understanding global warming and climate change. Anybody wishing to understand climate change in a neutral atmosphere (the reports are amazingly free of politics) can do no better than to read all three volumes of the latest IPCC climate change report. This third volume focuses on ways to prevent or reduce harmful climate change (mitigation of climate change).

Just four caveats:
1) It helps to have a solid understanding of basic science terms and principles before reading this;

2) The text can be a little dry at times (after all, it is a scientific report);

3) The report was a little out-of-date by the time it was printed, because our understanding of climate change impacts have increased greatly since the basic research was conducted that was synthesized and placed into this report; and

4) If you are new to reading about climate change, this should probably not be your introduction to the subject (see caveats 1 and 2 above). You can buy four or five terrific climate change books for the price of this one volume alone - for example, Hell and High Water by Joseph Romm, Heat by George Monbiot, Boiling Point by Ross Gelbspan, The Weather Makers by Tim Flannery, and With Speed and Violence by Fred Pearce.

Until the next IPCC report is released in 2013, this third volume on Mitigation of Climate Change is worthy of reading if you want to get to the basic science of climate change.
