CCR-II: Physical Science builds on the work presented in previous volumes and adds summaries and analysis of new research available since 2011 and as recently as July 2013, making it the world’s most comprehensive and current description of the state of climate science. Compared with previous volumes, CCR-II provides much expanded discussions of temperature records, computer models, and the impact of solar variability on climate.
CCR-II: Impacts, Costs, and Benefits also builds on the work presented in previous volumes on the impact of climate change on plants, animals, and human welfare, and adds new research on energy policy, economics, and public policies influenced by climate change. It tracks the issues addressed by the IPCC’s Working Group 2, but without that group’s unjustified alarmism and bias against market economies.
