A History of the Science and Politics of Climate Change
The role of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
Bert Bolin
Cambridge University Press (2007).
IBSN 978-0-521-88082-4.
xiii + 277 pp.
Price: £ 60/US$ 120


The issue of human-induced global climate change became a major environmental concern during the 20th century. Response to climate change requires effective action from the scientific community, society in general and politicians in particular. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), provides this service to the countries of the world.

Written by its first Chairman, this book provides an overview of the history of the IPCC. It describes and evaluates the intricate interactions of the science and politics of climate change, the strategy that has been followed, and the uncertainties that have prevented action being taken earlier. The book also discusses the problem of establishing a sustainable global energy system and preventing a serious change in global climate.
