The IPCC's limp-wristed climate assessment

In trying to cover off on all possibilities, the latest report from the IPCC summarising impacts from climate change is likely to leave politicians and the media confused as to what's in store if we fail to act.

On Monday, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released the second part of its Fifth Assessment Report. This second section attempts to summarise the research available on the likely impacts of human-induced climate change.

This builds on the first section of the Assessment Report, released back in September, which detailed our understanding of how the physical climate (temperature, rainfall, sea level, etc) is likely to change with increasing greenhouse gas emissions.
