The Working Group I contribution to the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (WGI AR5) provides a comprehensive assessment of the physical science basis of climate change.
The 148-page Highlights book presents the major findings and selected highlights from Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment.
