The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released the fourth report in its series of climate change reports. The IPCC has worked with scientists around the world to collect, assess and process a body of solid and up-to-date scientific literature on climate change.

This information is contained in the first three volumes of "Climate Change 2007." "The Synthesis Report," released at a recent IPCC press conference, forms the final report on "Climate Change 2007." Earlier this year, the IPCC released "The Physical Science Basis," "Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability," and "Mitigation of Climate Change."

"The Synthesis Report " integrates this information into a readable and concise document targeted to policymakers.
