Review of the Fourth Assessment Report - Climate Change 2007: '... a milestone for climate change science and policy.' Science Review of the Fourth Assessment Report - Climate Change 2007: '... the world's most authoritative voice on global warming ... Every member of Congress should read this report.' The New York Times Review of the Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001: 'The detail is truly amazing ... invaluable works of reference ... no reference or science library should be without a set [of the IPCC volumes] ... unreservedly recommended to all readers.' Journal of Meteorology Review of the Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001: 'The subject is explored in great depth and should prove valuable to policy makers, researchers, analysts, and students.' American Meteorological Society Review of the Second Assessment Report - Climate Change 1995: '... essential reading for anyone interested in global environmental change, either past, present or future ... These volumes have a deservedly high reputation.' Geological Magazine Review of the Second Assessment Report - Climate Change 1995: '... a wealth of clear, well-organized information that is all in one place ... there is much to applaud.' Environment International Review of the Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001: '... structured in the well-established format of all former IPCC Assessment Reports ... will surely be the standard reference for ... arguments related with the science, the impacts, adaptation and vulnerability, and with mitigation and adaptation to 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.' Meteorologische Zeitschrift Review of the Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001: 'The 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.' Wind Engineering Review of the Third Assessment Report - Climate Change 2001: '... 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. There can be few natural scientists 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.'
