Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Jointly established by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) first issued emission scenarios to be used for driving global circulation models to develop climate change scenarios in 1992. Since that IS92 report, many scientific understandings have changed, so the IPCC has decided to issue a new set of emission scenarios that provide input for evaluating climatic and environmental consequences of future greenhouse gas emissions and for assessing alternative mitigation and adaptation strategies. The scenarios cover driving forces from demographic to technological and economic developments. Also provided is an overview of scenario literature and introductory material explaining the presented scenarios. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
