Climate change 2001: The scientific basis. Contribution of Working Group I to the Third Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change David J. Griggs and Maria Noguer Met Office Hadley Centre, Bracknell Background The earthâs climate system has demonstrably changed since the pre-industrial era, with some of these changes attributable to human activities. The consequences of climate change pose a serious challenge to policy-makers. Hence they need an objective source of information about climate change, its impacts and possible response options. Recognising this, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the United Nations Environmental Programme jointly established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988. The terms of reference of the IPCC include: (i) to assess available scientific and socioeconomic information on climate change and its impacts, and the options for mitigating climate change and adapting to it; and to provide, on request, scientific/technical/socio-economic advice to the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The WGI report (IPCC 2001) on the scientific basis of climate change is the first part of Climate change 2001, the Third Assessment Report (TAR) of the IPCC. Other companion assessment volumes have been produced
