    Reviews & endorsements

    "Every member of Congress should read this report."
    The New York Times

    "The WGII [Working Group II] report provides a balanced and objective synthesis of state-of-the-art knowledge on how climate change will impact Earth's natural and managed systems. The quality of the writing is excellent and succinct, and figure quality is superb. Given the nature of the synthesis, references used are current and appropriate, while technical terms are usefully defined in a comprehensive glossary. This WGII report is essential reading for all scientists and policymakers involved in climate change research." - Anson Mackay, Journal of Environmental Quality
