Media reviews
'The detail is truly amazing ! invaluable works of reference ! no reference or science library should be without a set ! unreservedly recommended to all readers.' Peter Rogers, The Journal of Meteorology 'This well-edited set of three volumes will surely be the standard reference for nearly all arguments related with global warming and climate change in the next years. It should not be missing in the libraries of atmospheric and climate research institutes and those administrative and political institutions which have to deal with global change and sustainable development.' Stefan Emeis, Meteorologische Zeitschrift 'This volume makes another significant step forward in the understanding of the likely impacts of climate change on a global scale.' John E. Thornes, International Journal of Climatology 'The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has conducted what is arguably the largest, most comprehensive and transparent study ever undertaken by mankind ! The result is a work of substance and authority, which only the foolish would deride ! All wind power practitioners should make themselves familiar with these seminal Reports, which provide authoritative justification for increasing wind power as a modern and essential technology.' Wind Engineering 'Whether the reader is a proponent of greenhouse-gas induced climatic change or a sceptic, the weight of evidence presented, the authority that IPCC commands and the breadth of view can hardly fail to impress and earn respect. Each of the volumes is essentially a remarkable work of reference, containing a plethora of information and copious bibliographies, mostly of post 1995 papers. There can be few natural scientist who will not want to have at least one of these volumes to hand on their bookshelves, at least until further research renders the details outdated by the time of the next survey.'
