About the Authors
  • How will the world's climate change in the coming century? The answer to this question depends on how human societies develop in terms of demographics and economic development, technological change, energy supply and demand, and land use change. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on Emissions Scenarios describes new scenarios of the future, and predicts greenhouse gas emissions associated with such developments. The scenarios provide the basis for future assessments of climate change and possible response strategies. This volume is the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art assessment available of greenhouse gas emissions scenarios, and provides invaluable information for industry, policy-makers, environmental organizations, and researchers in global change, technology, engineering and economics.

    • Definitive, comprehensive and state-of-the-art special report from the prestigious Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
    • No other volume discusses in detail how the world's climate may change over the next century
    • Contributors are all world-class experts

    Reviews & endorsements

    'An environmental thriller that offers six alternative storylines and some potentially grim endings.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

    'The new emissions report from the IPCC has, however, done the climate-change debate a great service. … This volume is crucial contextual reading for understanding the forthcoming Third Assessment Report of the IPCC. … It is essential reading for anyone who is researching in the area of future climate change and its implications.' Mike Hulme, Geography and Environmental Science
