Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
The task of the IPCC is not to produce original research on climate change, but rather to assess scientific knowledge on climate change and its effects from published scientific literature. IPCC documents are subject to review by UN member states and are edited on a line-by-line basis by delegates assigned that task by member nations.
Since its inception in 1988, the IPCC has produced five major comprehensive climate change reports in 1990, 1995, 2001, 2007 and 2014. Each assessment report (AR) is numbered (e.g., AR1, AR 2, etc.,). All IPCC reports are available here: IPCC Reports. Each report has added to the conclusion that current trends in climate change are significantly driven by human behavior. For additional information related to this conclusion see the Climate Change Consensus entry in this dictionary.
