Inside the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change: Science, Policy and Politics

A Siebel Energy Grand Challenge Lecture Series

This six-part lecture series brought together lead authors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report to discuss the latest scientific findings and the unique process of coordinated scientific effort that is the IPCC. The series was co-sponsored by the Siebel Energy Grand Challenge, the Program in Science, Technology, the Environmental Policy of the Woodrow Wilson School, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.
