By the end of September, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will finalize the first installment of its Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). This will focus on the physical science basis for the threat of climate change. Some of the conclusions have already been leaked and have been the subject of divergent media stories.

Many of the stories highlight the conclusion that the climate continues to change: temperatures are increasing, oceans are warming, sea-levels are rising, ice in the Arctic and elsewhere is melting, and extreme weather events are becoming more severe. These stories also add that we humans are responsible for most of the changes. What is of more concern is that some of these changes seem to be accelerating.
