Several PNNL staff members are helping shape how the World views climate change through their contributions to the Fourth IPCC Climate Change 2007 Assessment Report. IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), which was established by the United Nations and the World Meteorological Organization to provide information relevant to climate change, periodically issues reports to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the current state of knowledge on climate change. Since January 2007, IPCC's three Working Groups have issued summaries for policy makers, with complete reports due later this year. PNNL participants include:

Working Group I, "The Physical Science Basis": Ruby Leung, contributing author.

Working Group II, "Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability": Mike Scott and Tony Janetos, lead authors; Liz Malone and Antionette Brenkert, contributing authors.

Working Group III, "Mitigation of Climate Change": Jae Edmonds, lead author; Hugh Pitcher and Leon Clarke, contributing authors; Liz Malone, review editor.

The depth and breadth of contribution demonstrates PNNL staff members' standing as world class experts and their influence on the scientific, technical and socio-economic understanding of climate change. Congratulations and thank you.
